f0lret 0rh. wre take this opportunity to
JJ thank the Faculty, and all
our friends whose help and assistance has been
so generously given us in order to make this book
possible. And in particular do we wish to express
our gratitude to Mr. Robertson, our class advisor,
and Miss Hopkins, our English instructor, who
have worked with us unceasingly.
We have tried to portray the school spirit and
activities of Balboa High in this annual, and
hope that in future years all may look back over
its pages with pleasure, and recall scenes and
fond recollections that have become dimmed in
the passing years. -The Zonian Sta'f.

IT'S NOT TOO LATE.


Elizabeth 'orUleet, ''/.


Do you take school as a joke? Have you con-
sidered your years of study a waste of time? Do
you feel you could have done better had you
stopped after c.mpl': riL_ grammar school? Some
of you do, hut you few have made yourselves feel
that way. You have gone to school because you
were made to go, not because you wanted to work
and improve yourselves. Each moment should
be used in study-study which helps so much even
if you have left school.
Education helps everyone. There is no one
that can not be improved by the right sort of
training. How much better it is to be taught in
school to help yourself, than by the experience
of hard knocks. If you put yourself in the proper
attitude to receive instruction, you will learn
,omlethinL every day which will help you later
on. Turn over a new leaf at once. Make your-
self like school for your future life's sake. Study
seriously. Notice how many things you will learn
in the hours you had thought wasted. Then you
will learn to make a success of.i n, rhin.g you under-
take.
THE HILL OF DIFFICULTY.
Agines McDade, '2j.
For every person in this world, there is a hill
of difficulty. Though some of these hills are


higher than others, none are insurmountable. If
the people of the world were divided into distinct
classes, we could see just how these hills of diffi-
culty are treated.
There is one group that goes to the foot of the
hill, and examines it. It looks at the size of the
hill, its height, its width; and then sits down and
waits for the hill to move itself. This group is
always disappointed; for the hill, instead of mov-
ing itself, piles higher and higher.
There is another group that goes to the foot of
the hill, and measures it, and then decides to try
to walk around. Very few of this group ever suc-
ceed, for when the dlt,_r..nr members get to the
other side, they can not find the path, and so can
not go on.
There is another group that goes to the hill, and
feeling that it cannot climb the hill decides to
tunnel thr. llh it. If the tunnel is straight, and
the digging is performed so that the walls will not
cave in, this group is successful. Unfortunately,
however, the various members of the ...p., are
in too great a hurry, and when the tunnel is dug,
the walls cave in, and the people can in no way
get out.
There is another group that can climb the hill
with a little assistance. Some people, who under-
stand the difficulties better than the climbers do,


ED I TOR AL








THE LONIAN.


can guide their first steps, after that the group
can be left alone. The ones who are willing to
help these people, are the ones who can most easily
ascend their own hills.
Another group that goes, thinks that the climb
will be easy, and looks down upon those who do
not think so. Man\ members of this group slip
and fall. Some of these start out with a new de-
termination, and reach the top of the hill safely;
but many others stay at the bottom, and wait for
the hill to move itself.
The last group is the one that looks at the hill,
sizes it up, and with grim determination, decides
to climb it. Very few of this group fail, for "Well
begun is half done." They do not try to rush up
without any effort, they do not wait for a miracle
to carry them to the top, but they themselves
get busy and work hard.
Everyone falls into one of these classes. In
which one are you? Work for the last one; it
may seem at times that you can not succeed, but
persevere, and you will win.


YOUR OPPORTUNITIES.

Floride Edwards, '24.

The majority of students in High School do not
realize that they are in the formative period of
their lives. Minor incidents in daily life, as bor-
rowing a sheet of paper, failing to return a pencil,
or telling a little white lie to get out of an assign-
ment, all lead to greater negligence in more ma-
ture years.
Habits formed in youth follow one throughout
life. As the bones in one's body take on the shape
that they will carry through life, while one is
young, so does one's brain expand or lie dormant.
Vigorous exercise of the brain in youth permits
earnest thinking and heavy brainwork in later life.
If assignments were done each day, not com-
pleted just for a grade, but honestly studied and
honestly learned, each day, what a fund of know-
ledge one would have!
Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, do not wait
until you are Seniors to realize what school means!
Do not wait until you can only regret that you


didnotmake moreof your High School course, but
study each day! Take advantage of" your oppor-
tunities as they are offered to you.


BEWARE FRESHIES!

Phyllis Milliken, '24.
"Early to bed and early to rise makes a man
healthy, wealthy, and wise." This may be an
old saying but, nevertheless, it is true. How can
one expect to get his lessons if he is up late.every
night? It is impossible. Freshmen say, "'Oh,
well, if I do fail in anything this year I shall have
three more years in which to make it up." But
this is not the attitude to take because if one has
to carry five subjects, he is very likely to fail again
in his Sophomore year and during his Senior year
it will be difficult to carry five studies. Beware,
Freshies, for you may want your good times now
but when you lack one credit to be able to attend
the Junior-Senior Banquet you will wish you had
sacrificed all good times. Start in now and wurk
for the greatest desire in your life-your diploma.


CAREFULNESS.

Gwendolyn Barden, '24.
Carefulness is one of the things which we should
learn in school.
In doing our written lessons, if we are in a hurry,
we are likely to be careless and leave some small
unimportant word out, or misspell a word, which,
if we took time to think, we no doubt would spell
right. These small things are sometimes over-
looked by the teachers, but later in our business
life, our employers will not be so willing to over-
look our errors.
Many days we come to class with our lessons
unprepared, expecting the teacher to give us an-
other chance to catch up. If we were careful in
the planning of our work there would be no need
to ask for another chance.
Carefulness is something which we should try to
develop while we are in school, so that in after
years we will not regret our careless, slovenly way
of trying to get through life.

AMERICAN "PUG" WINS LAURELS IN ENGLAND.

"Shingle" Engelke, as this is the name he com-
monly goes by, has finished the light-weight box-
ing champion of England. He is not a "south-
paw" as most people believe, but packs his knock-
out wallop in his right glove. Mr. Engelke is an
expert in all the most skillful devises known in
boxing, and employs some of his own making.
This young man made his debut in Panama
where he was enthusiastically cheered whenever
he made his appearance. All are looking forward
to the time when "Shingle" will be proclaimed
"light-weight boxing champion of the world."

NEW WONDER DISCOVERED IN EGYPT.
ALTON WHITE. FOUND TO BE AN EXPERT ON 1HE HABITS OF
BUTTERFLIES.
Mr. Alton White was discovered on the Sahara,
hunting for butterflies by Professor Sneeze of
Bugum College, well-known bug specialist. Pro-
fessor Sneeze states that Mr. White did not know
he knew so much about these fascinating crea-
tures until he was thoroughly quizzed on this
subject. Mr. \\'hitc spent most of his boyhood in
Panama, where he devoted his spare time to
searching for the most exquisite specimens. He
has the largest collection of tropical butterflies in

been the learned man that he is to-day.

ACCIDENT TO ARCHITECT.

The friends of Miss Mattielee Brown, promising
architect, will be glad to hear that her recent ac-
cident, which occurred when she fell from the top
of a 40-story building, for which she was design-
ing a steeple, left her a little dazed, but not seri-
ously hurt.
It is rumored that the city intends to sue for
damages done to the sidewalk, upon which she
left a deep impression. The janitor has threatened
to rc-in if she continues this nerve-racking work
as he doesn't want to have to clean up the side-
walk.

WORD RECEIVED FROM ARCTIC EXPLORER.

Word has been received from the world-re-
nowned Arctic explorer, Prof. Philip Thornton,
that he has at last discovered the North Pole,
having stumped his toe upon it, while stumbling
around during the six months' darkness.
Camels were used in this expedition, and the
Professor says that he finds they do not notice
the heat as they are very fond of ice cream and
eii.. the change from the cold climate in which
they o liin.ill. came.
The company has encountered numerous hordes
of the intelligent Ikmik, some of which they in-
tend to bring back with them to the United
States for exhibition.

NOBLE WORK IN FIJI ISLANDS.
Mr. Andrew \hitlii.k, missionary to Bacalao'
has designed a new braided grass skirt for the
native belles. He converts these people with his
Irish ditties played on his saxophone, so that they
are willing to wear these fantastic skirts two
inches longer than the previous ones.
We believe everyone will agree with us that
this is an improvement which should not be over-
looked. We are also confident that greater works
will follow from the hands of this great man.

A LEGEND.


Patricia i
Chaos and destruction reigned in the doomed
city of Panama. Only one of the stately homes
was spared-that of the murdered Don Juan de
Sanuigo, which was occupied by the conqueror,
Henry M..i-a:in. The one incident which marred
his triumph was the failure of his followers to
discover the hiding place of the immense treasure
of the ancient house of Sanuigo.
Dolores, the daughter of the Spanish nobleman,
alone knew the secret, but she refused to reveal
it. They brought her before \1 I'g.i and his
most trusted lieutenant, a young Englishman
named William Abbington. She inclined her head
slightly as she approached them, her beautiful face
haughty and impassive.
"M, guest seems to forget that I have thrice
before sent him my answer to his command."
"Nay, but I would not be harsh with you. As
soon as you have told me where the gold is hidden,
you may return to Spain."
"And allow the priceless treasures of my house
ta fall into the hands of the British dogs! You,
the murderer of my father, insult me by suggest-
ing such treachery!"
"You scorn my offer! Then you shall rot in a
dungeon!"
Her eyes flashing and her body li ii 1, she re-
plied: "Better to rot in my father's halls than tj
leave them forever disgraced!" She swept from
the room.
When she was gone, \..r 11 turned to William
Abbieir..n. "Have her confined without food or
water, but visit her every day to see if she is will-
ing to reveal the secret."


"Surely, you do not mean to carry out your
cruel threat!" exclaimed the horrified lieutenant.
"It is true that our Majesty is zealous in defiance
of the Spaniards, hut imprisoning and murdering
ladies is preposterous to think of!"
"Silence! If you do not obey my commands, I
am capable of taking as drastic measures with
Vou."
Abbington was stunned by his leader's merci-
less pursuance of his sole object-gold. A wild
plan presented itself to him. He would no longer
serve the despotic leader whom he detested for
his cruelties and for whom he had no respect.
The English ships lay in the harbor, one of which
he commanded. They would escape, he and Do-
lores, to safety. If they could only leave the city
without being detected, all would be well.
He arranged everything for their departure
that night, for Dolores was to be conducted to
her cell the next morning. They hurried toward
the small boat waiting for them at the shore.
Suddenly, a figure loomed out of the darkness-
Morgan, prowling about the destroyed city and
gloating over its ruin!
"William Abbington, to-night two prisoners will
be left in the dungeon to perish instead of one."
They were hurried to the prison and descended
the long qilr of stone steps. Grotesque shadows
leaped on the wall and the drawn, white faces
of the condemned prisoners looked unearthly in
the red glare of the torches. The slimy cell into
which they were thrust was illuminated for an
instant, and then the chill, black darkness swal-
lowed them alive.

THE FUl'NTAIN OF YOliTH.
Hattie Belle Rader, '26.


O Dreamers of the world, come gather in Old Panama. Lis-
ten to the tales of this ruined shrine of romance, revel in the
spirit of adventure, come back over the years, side by side,
hand in hand, with the ghosts of yesterday, and listen to their
melancholy voices, speaking in the tropic night, echoing near
and far, lost in the swish of the waves, whispering to the
shadows in the swaying trees-list' to the ghosts of yesterday.
About half a century ago, in Panama, there
lived a grand old Spanish family of reputed name,
Valdes. Health, wealth, and happiness were
theirs. Don Ramon, lost in the maze of research
work; Carmen, his wife, beautiful and gr.ci,,us;
Jose, just entering upon stalwart, youngmanhood;
Carlos, quiet and studious, and Mariquita, the
baby, vivacious and joyful.
Jose, proud of his daring .pirir, the gift of his
Spanish forefathers, excelled in all of the sports
of the day. His was the skill of youth, ever ven-
turing into forbidden waters. But like all for-
bidden things, Jose bounded once too often from
the bow of his canoe and found a watery grave
in the alligator-ridden depths of the Chagres.
Don Ramon found the shock too much even
for him to bear. Continued reflections upon the
tragic death of Jose, at the very threshold of man-
hood, caused him to be possessed of the idea that
Jos6 would live again.
The Valdes family, lost in their grief, dropped
out of their former gay life and became melan-
choly wrecks of their bright, cheerful selves.
Don Ramon, in his great sorrow, soon showed
the signs of an unbalanced mind, and two years
later the world discovered that the once lauded
man was a fanatic and a lunatic.
Don Ramon, his madness increasing each day,
lived in a hazy world of his own. He was sure of
one thing, and that became his sole purpose in
living. Jos6 was not dead, for his soul was Ra-
mon's soul. Ramon must find the magical Foun-
tain of Youth and grow young like Jos6, before
Jose could return. Firm in this conviction, Ra-
mon's mind ci njiur.d all kinds of visions in which
the famous Ponce de Leon appeared to him and
directed his actions.
These supposed visions, forever preying upon
his mind, caused him to forfeit his entire estate


in a vain search for the Fountain of Youth. He
was besieged upon all sides by grafters %with wild
schemes, who sought to take advantage of his
madness.
At last the Valdes family, poverty stricken and
helpless, were forced to move into an uld, deserted
native hut near the well-know~n tow.er of Old
Panama, relic of a once prosperous city, where
Don Ramon declared Ponce de Leon had in-
structed him to search for the Fountain of Youth.
There the family lived for four years in dirt
and squalor. Carlos was a young man and Mari-
quita an old-womanish, withered blossom of a
child. Carmen, in these dank surroundings, lost
her bloom and beauty, and became ugly.
Don Ramon had never given up the search for
the Fountain of Youth. One night he had a mar-
velous vision in which Ponce de Leon led him
through the woods and whispered to him a great
secret-the blood of a maiden or a \outh mnust
mingle with the soil about this rock ind thereupon
the Fountain of Youth would gush, pure and
sweet, to him who called, and all those who drank
thereof would have eternal youth.
Don Ramon, 'r,,,ding over this, suddenly
chanced upon an evil scheme. In his madness,
all paternal love had left him. Tricking Carlus
one night near the rock, he stunned him with a
huge stone, sprinkled the blood of \ utrh over the
rough ground and buried the body (if his faithful
son beneath the rock. For days D In Rnami-n sat
with patient expectations by the altar fhi his hope,
but no Fountain of Youth gushed forth to crown
his tireless efforts.
Carmen, broken beneath the too heavy burden
of her unhappiness, at last knew the peace of that
happier land beyond the conception of man.
M.lriquira buried her poor mother under the cold
sod at the side of the gloomy hut, with neither
casket nor ceremony. There were but two
mourners, a withered, bent child, and a white-
haired, chuckling old man.
Don Ramon, chagrined at his failure, conceived
the idea that the rock needed more sacrifice to

make it magical, and so with fiendish craftiness
prepared for the death of his only one, \1.,inluta.
The night was very gloomy and dark. The
moon shone blood red in the heavens and gave
off no light, the waves, lapping upon the shore,
sang a melancholy lullaby, and the leaves in their
chanting foretold the coming of evil. Don
Ramon, at the height of his madness, pursued his
screaming daughter through the woods straight
to the rock. Mariquita, horrified, pleaded for
mercy in vain.


The Fountain of Youth gushed clear and cool
from that rock, and Don Ramon drank deeply,
deeply, deeply, and through the woods that night
a young man walked.
JosC had returned.


Dreamers, hear the whispering of the trees, the soft patter
of youth's footsteps on the paths of life. Come back through
the mistv clouds, over the trails of the years, come back, side
by side, hand in hand, and list' to the ghosts of yesterday, w h
seek for the Foutain of Youth.


A TRIP TO THE VILLAGE OF ARAJAN.
11. Brown, '24.


Six o'clock Friday morning, the eighteenth of
April, found a happy, enthusiastic company of us
bound for pier 18. In our company were: Mary
Joe Lowe, Alberta Powers, Frances Brown, Mattie-
lee Brown, .Mr,. George Lowe, Philip Thornton,
Marvin Banton, Alton White, and Douglas Cross.
That we had seven miles of hot, dusty and stony
trail to cover before we reached our destination,
bothered us little. The morning air was delight-
ful; we had eaten and drank our fill before leaving;
we were comfortable.
We crossed the Canal in two rowboats, and then
began our (we didn't realize how very I ... I hike
to the native village, Arajan. For the first three
miles conversation flowed easily, with frequent
bursts of laughter; but soon both became more
infrequent. The sun's presence was now felt.
The trail was getting steeper.
Soon we came to a native hut where we stopped
to fill our canteens, and to rest. The Spanish
woman there was very pleasant, and even pro-
duced a mirror that thegirls might "brighten up"-
all their energy had not gone yet. She also served
papaya, which we devoured in little time. Then
we resumed our hike.
A._,:iii conversation brightened, but soon only
puffs and "whews" and "ohs" were heard as we
trudged on, the sun's rays 'I... in' upon us. It
began to seem as though we'd traveled fifty miles,
and with each curve we prayed that when it was
rounded, Arajan, cooling and ..F h. lli' ,, would lie
before us. I say cooling and refreshing, for vou


see, we hadn't been there before and had had a
beautiful picture of a stream, overhung by moss-
covered trees and all -you know, the regular trop-
ical scene.
Presently however, we knew better. Arajan
lay before us, and as we could not have gone a
step farther, we sank down on the grass under some
trees and lay there until we were rested to get up
and hunt the stream.
We found it, or rather the watering place of the
village. But what a disappointment! It consisted
of a little pui.l.lb. of water about twelve inches in
circumference, and about as deep, surrounded by
rocks from which slowly trickled the water. We
had had a vision of dipping our poor tired feet in
the cooling water, but now we saw that we were
lucky to have something to drink.
No need to mention that we were starved.
That is a mild expression compared to the condi-
tion we were in. So we sat down in the shady
place and soon made short work of the lunches
prepared 1,\ the girls.
One of the girls, sad to say, had worn her shoes
out on the trip, so we went on a shopping tour up
in the ill where rope-soled shoes were pur-
chased for the --of' riu I one. The rest of the dax
was spent in exploring and resting by turns.
Time soon came for us to, be on our way. The
boys went up to the village to round up some
horses. They were able to get only five, and as
their owners would not let us ride double, the
boys had to walk.


S








THE ZONIAN.


Three of the girls had never ridden before, and
it was rather amusing at the beginning of the
trip. Later on, we were in for some real excite-
ment, however. Two of the horses had bad dis-
pistii.,n., but nothing was thiouht of it until the
got together in a little clearing where a free-for-all
began. Their riders, one of the girls and the chap-
eron, were both thrown headlong upon the ground,
the girl also rcciivinii a kick from one of the
horses. After the horses were caught and their
riders deposited on the grass in more comfortable
positions, we all sat down to get our nerves ti-
gethTer.



THE LEGEND OF S.A
Mary F...,.-



Even the most practical of people are apt to
go romancing when they look upon those fa.t
decaying walls of the buildings that composed
that once great city of Old Panama.
In our imagination we are able to see that beau-
tiful, famous city as it once stood, before the com-
ing of that notorious English buccaneer, Sir Henr%
Morgan-the Alexandria of the Americas, with its
tall church spires and palatial homes. Now, I am
going to tell you the Legend of San Agustin Cath -
dral; it has been told by father to son for nearly
four hundred years.
In the year 1671, San Agustin Cathedral was the
largest church in Old Panama. In its belfry, the
ruins of which you can still see, was a bell that
could be heard all over the city, and in all the out-
lying districts. With the first ruddy rays of the
sun in the morning and the last copper ray in the
c\veling, the angelus could be heard, like the voice
of a padre giving blessing to the whole city.
One evening the padres were walking to and fr.-,
in pairs, outlined against the rich gold and fainr
opal tints of the sky, repeating their prayers a,
was their custom. The air was sweet with th,:
tropical odors of rose, jasmine, and ginger lilh,
because there were many beautiful flowers in the
grounds that surrounded the Cathedral. Slowi
the sun sank, changing the blue Pacific into a
shimmering mass of shining metal. The sun, like
a fire ball, shone red, half hidden by the purple
veiled mountains in the distance. The first lone

people had heard that Morgan was coming, but
instead of preparing to fight him they had left
their protection in the hands of the padres who
chanted mass every morning for the safety of their
beloved city. Now they were coming. Pedro was
terrified. Instantly he started to ring the '..II
with all his might. The loud clangs of the bell
seemed to be crying, "Flee for your lives! Flee
for your lives!"
Some padre from within the chapel below called
to find out the cause of this ringing of the bell.
All that Padre Pedro was able to answer was, "Warn
the people to flee for their lives! Morgan comes!"
The city became panic stricken; people seemed
mad; they rushed hither and thither, burying
their wealth in holes or hollow places. "till the
bell rang to warn those farther away from the city.
People started to burn those things which they
were unable to take with them rather than let
them fall into ri.rgain's hands. Somehow the
Cathedral started to burn, the origin of the fire
was one of the many mysteries that occur when
people are terrified. From that minute on the
padres were so ne..c_ .1 in trying to save the beau-
tiful things of the church, that they almost forgot
Padre Pedro. Still the bell rang.


When Abad Diego realized that Padre Pedro
must still be ringing the bell, quickly he ran to
the foot of the stair case. The heat in the Chapel
was intense; the vast altar and part of the floor
were burning.
Gasping for breath Diego called, "Padre!
Padre! Padre! the Cathedral burns, come quickly
or the steps will be burning and you will be unable
to leave the building."
"Flee! Save yourself. There are those who
yet must be warned; to warn them is my duty,"
came faintly to the straining ears of Diego. The
flames were scorching his robes and the heat was
SiH .'.ia rj ; blindly Diego staggered to the open
door, turning again he saw a long flame like some
tongue of Satan reach out and encircle the stair
case. Still the bell rang. He staggered into the
patio and looked once again at the building. Out
of every opening shot long flames, but still the
bell rang. The walls started to crumble. The
bell gave one long peal, as though to say good-
bye. In that tone there seemed to be the satis-
faction of one who has done his duty.
A crash. The stair case and part of the belfry
had fallen, and the bell was silent.

(IDIO


In a small hovel in old E.'". !'s slum lived a
very queer old man. He was dwarflike, and his
thin, white beard hung halfway down his chest.
His hair was thin, but curly, and clung about his
stooped shoulders. Out of his ancient face gleamed
two little blue eyes. His nose was slightly hooked
and his teeth were pearly white and probably
false. He wore a tunic of thick material of a dull
crimson, and about his neck he wore a charm.
Anyone who had touched this charm had great
chills of horror, and no wonder, for the thing re-
sembled a human eye. It looked as if it were made
of glass or china but on feeling it, you had the
feeling of touching a peeled grape.
His den was gloomy and at night was lighted by
a single candle which cast a queer, uncertain shad-
ow about the room. The furniture consisted of a
chair, on which he never sat, which was beautifully
MR 91031-3


carved and resembled a throne. It was covered
with cobwebs and several families of mice found
the lining of the richly embroidered cushions very
comfortable. There was also a straight chair
which he always used, on old table, and a large
chest which seemed to match the throne-like
chair. If you took a peep into this chest you
would see colored bottles filled with queer sub-
stances, small boxes, which might hold almost
anything, mysterious leather books, old papers,
and a certain amount of cobwebs, dust and spiders.
This old man, though queer, was not harmful
and would not hurt a fly, but he had a very hasty
temper. It made him hideously angry when any-
one doubted his word.
One day an elderly gentleman came into his
doorway. With a frown he glanced around the
room. The old man hastily arose and offered him

the chair. The English gentleman pulled out a
large handkerchief and with another frown,
dusted off imaginary dust-for the chair was al-
ready quite clean-lifted up his coat-tails and
sat down. After surveying the room for a minute
or two, during which an :ingr1 shadow crossed the
old man's face, he spoke.
"Mr. A-er- "
"Doctor Heffe," prompted the old man.
"Ah, Doctor Heffe, I have come on a matter of
some importance." He paused as if the old man
were not capable of understanding too much at
one time.
"I have heard from various sources that you are
somewhat of a-er-well, magician. Is this true?"
"It is," answered Doctor Heffe.
"I have heard," continued the gentleman, "I
have heard also that you claim to be able to re-
store youth. Is that true also?"
There seemed a slight sarcasm in his voice. The
old man leaned nervously against the table; he
was plainly angered.
"It is," he said. He fingered the charm around
his neck.
"Could you be so kind as to tell me how? If
that is possible?" The sarcasm had gone out of
his voice and he talked in sugary tones.
"'-Wll," said the old man bitterly, "Yes, I
could. I have never told anyone the secret but
I am getting very old now and I do not, by any

means, want my youth again. First, you must
have a great many people, for it is great trouble
to go through the process for only a few."
"Oh, certainly," replied the gentleman, who had
become interested and had put his gloves on the
table without giving it first a thorough dusting
with his big handkerchief, "Yes, indeed! I know
I can get many people."
"Very well. Day after to-morrow morning be
outside the city gates at the east side about one
hour after sunrise."


"Thank you, Doctor Heffe, very much!" his eyes
lighted, then he sneered: "But see here! If there
is any humbug to this- !" he grabbed the old
man's tunic near the throat-his hand touched
the charm; he started back with horror in his
eyes. With trembling hands he picked up his
hat and gloves and with a muttered "good-day,"
he hurried out of the gloomy room.
When he was out in the street again he took a
deep breath.
"M'~ word! Whatan ierd place." He shivered.
He then remembered that he had dropped his
handkerchief in there, but he quickly entered
the coach which was waiting for him.
The news was spread all over the city the next
day and the people, middle-aged and old, were
frantically inquiring about the ne" scheme.
The next morning, an hour after sunrise, six
hundred eager people were gathered outside the
city gates waiting for the old magician. \\hen he
came, there came behind him six hundred gray
donkeys with blue bridles and saddles. Doctor
Heffe rode a small, nimble donkey ith a crimson
bridle and saddle.
The people wondered but did as they were bid
and silently mounted the donke) s. They rode for
many hours without stopping to eat or drink.
When it was almost sundown and the people, being
old and not used to riding donke. s, ab hed in every
bone, they came to a large mountain. On one side,
much secluded by large bowlders and shrubbery,
was a dark tunnel.
He bade them follow him. The tunnel "as in
pitch darkness and the people became frightened
and begged to go back. The old man unly an-
swered that he knew perfectly what he "as doing.
Suddenly they saw a light ahead. "It is the
daylight," they cried. Indeed it was the bright
sunshine.
"But," they exclaimed, "it was dusk %hen "e
entered the tunnel!"
"Yes," he answered them, "You are now in the
land of Youth and Beauty."
They found themselves in a most magnificent
garden. The paths were paved with rosy shells.
Graceful lilies, fragrant roses, and flowers of every
kind and color bloomed. There %were many foun-
tainsin which goldfish swam about. In the shady,
lacy trees birds of paradise and gorgeously colored
parrots screamed and scolded. Many of the trees
drouied down; they were so heavily laden with

lucious fruits. It never rained in this wonderful
garden but always the grass was green and a cool
breeze fanned the air. Though the people wander-
ed far into the garden they found no end.
"We are in a beautiful garden, most certainly,
but we are too old and tired to enjoy it. Where
is the Fountain of Youth?" asked one old man of
Doctor Heffe.
"Come with me," he said. He lead them to a
beautiful spot, the most wonderful in all the gar-
den. There the birds sang the sweetest, the .l A,. r s
bloomed the fullest and the trees bore the ripest
fruits. In the center of this spot was a delicately
carved marble fountain. But no trickling water
issued from it.
The people exclaimed, "The Fountain of Youth
and Beauty has dried up!" They looked sorrow-
fully and disappointedly at old Doctor Heffe.
"No, my people, I have here in my hand a jug
which contains the last of a substance that, with
the aid of you all, vill bring back the youthful
water."
"At sun-up every morning each one of you must
put into the crystal Fountain the oil in the skin
of half an orange, the oil of seven yellow rose
petals, and the sweet of three honeysuckles. Do
you understand? If you fail to do this the foun-
tain will gradually dry up and the Fountain of
Youth and Beauty will be banished from this
world. To keep your youth you must bathe your
faces every morning at sunrise. Do you all hear
me? This is the last," he cried, with his eyes on
the excited people, "This is the very last of the
priceless substance."
He then walked over to the quiet fountain and
from the jug which he held, spilled all of the con-
tents into the fountain. Immediately the bowl
of the Fountain became full and there rose a thin
stream of water in the air. It chuckled and gurgled
merrily as if glad to be out of the jug.
M\lan. days passed. The people became young
and gay again. All day they laughed and played
in the garden. They spent their time playing
games or sleeping sweetly in the warm sun and
to gathering fruits and playing lovely music. But
alas! They became too carefree and too happy
and often complained about their duty to the


fountain. When Doctor Heffe left them he told
them not to forget, and they did not for a time
until one day a rosy youth, who had once been a
yellow, shriveled, old man, said to his gay compan-
ions, "Friends, I see no reason why we should do
this tiresome thing every day and every day, do
you?" The merry young people I .i I. and
clapped their hands and shouted, "Neither do we!
Neither do we!"
"Of course," continued the youth, "we will put
some of the stuff in but will the fountain know
if we put just a certain amount in or not?"
They all laughed.
The next day :ir.ll half of the people put in
their portion. It was also that way the following
day and the next. One day a beautiful girl with
a skin the color of milk cried, "I do believe the
water in the Fountain is getting less and less!"
They told her that she had perhaps drunk too
much of the rich grape wine and laughed her fears
away.
But day by day the water in the fountain grew
less. Everyone then began to notice it but try as
they might, by putting more preparation in its
bowl it did not rise.
Every morning they bathed their faces in its
cool depths. It sent a tingling feeling through the
body and flushed the cheeks. One bright sunny
morning everyone arose with the sun and went to
bathe his face. To the perfect horror and amaze-
ment of the youths and maidens the fountain was
absolutely dry. They wailed and mourned and
wrung their hands but to no effect. About mid-
day the magician came to them. By then their
faces were worn and L.i-1'.ir l and had lost their
youthful tint, and their bones ached. They came
weepingly to him.
But he only said, "As I th ..lit. You were not
worthy. You would not do a little thing, so small
a sacrifice for so great a reward. I am sorry, but
there is nothing that I can do. The Fountain of
Youth and Beauty is banished from this earth!"
They looked at one another and cried in dismay.
They were old and shriveled once again. As they
looked about them they found themselves at the
other side of the mountain and the gray donkeys
were impatiently waiting.

WOODCRAFT WISDOM.
Panor.;m.l.


After having studied the subject of camping for
some time, gaining practical experience by sleep-
ing with all the windows open and wasting several
days camping in a pup tent, I have acquired suf-
ficient knowledge to define the following terms:
Camping.-An old Arabian word meaning time
of trouble.
Camp.-The place where one hooks the biggest
fish (but the fish always escape). "Growing fish"
are also found here. They grow larger at every
telling.
Site.-This word means the place of n:iniiIg,
not how it looks after being used a week.
Canteen.-A metal container with a large hole
in top to put the water in, and a small hole in the
bottom where it always leaks out. It is generally
full while being carried, but has leaked empty
when a drink is wanted.
Blankets.-Made in two sizes-too large and
too small. They should not be shrinkable, for if
one is caught in the rain overnight it is hard to
find them in the morning.
Poison Ivy.-A vine cruelly resembling straw-
berry vines. To tell the difference one should rub
the suspected leaves on the arms. If blisters
come, its ivy. Caution: Never eat ivy, as blisters
inside are incurable.
Skunk.-A treacherous animal whose resem-
blance to a cat sometimes causes embarrassing
circumstances too sad to mention.
Grub.- -W\hoi .:,mpiiu, this word refers to food
and not to a garden pest.
Coffee.-A mixture about the color of mud,
which, if made that way at home, would be
thrown in the sink, but which on a camping trip
is hurriedly gulped down and c.i, . .ld-a la Coue.


Pancakes.-A common rubbery food, burned
brown on one side and left white on the other.
It is sometimes used for washcloths and some-
times for putting out the fire.
Potatoes.-Called "spuds." Not good to eat
but useful in case of attack by lions. Should not
be carried in a canoe, as canoes are likely to sink.
Watch.-Called "turnip." It is often tied to
articles to hold them down during a wind storm.
To tell time in the dark, one should count the
ticks until morning and then subtract from the
number of ticks in twelve hours.
Fire .... ;..-A combination of two blocks of
wood, a bow, and a spindle. If these implements
are in proper order and the bow is sawed back and
forth long enough to some rollicking tune, it is
supposed to take fire. If a little smoke appears,
one need not be alarmed. Nothing will happen,
and after an hour or so the worker will be so hot
he doesn't need a fire.
IVeapons.-(a)-Knife.-Care should be taken
to close the blade before returning it to the pocket.
(b)-- .S", Shot.-Good for mosquito hunting.
Pup Tent.-Very fine-for pups.
Compass.-A box with a needle hung in it
which usually points north; however, it should be
used with discretion.
Sense of Humor.-A quality of the mind which
makes one say when he comes back, "I've had a
whale of a time! Never better! I'm going again
next year."
I hope if you have been patient enough to read
this through you will have gained a better know-
ledge of camping, but remember always-"Ex-
perience is the best teacher."

I.A .AVFNID.A CENTRAL.
L., 'ir n -"i i, '3 .


Lights and a blazing glare of colored costumes
were her first impressions of La Avenida Central
as her car swung out of Calle "J" and joined the
others in the Carnival procession. Carnivalmeant
nothing to her; she was just one of the many trav-
elers p.assinr through Panama on her way to
South America. Despite this, however, she could
not help but feel a tinge of excitement as she
watched the ga.. spectacle. On either side of the
street were noisy, dashing, dazzling people; some
were throwing confetti and others that vile-smell-
ing liquid which made its victims scream in pain.
Others ran along the sidewalk singing and bump-
ing into one person and then another. There
were people of every description and color, they
were speaking different tongues, motioning after
the manner of their nationality, and gayly flirting
back and forth, from the half-clad natives to
the richly dressed Hindus.
Her car seemed to poke along; her chauffeur
swore softly under his breath as he narrowly
missed hitting the small native boys who ran into
the street to pick up fallen confetti. She thought
of her life as she rode along; it had been strange;
her people had died when she was only a child,
and since then she had spent her life spending
her father's immense fortune, traveling from one
place to another, meeting many people but never
making friends. Her name, Martita Cabrie, was
known from one end of Europe to the other. Had
not her father been the richest man of France for
half a century and her mother the most notorious
woman? Yes, and those two facts made her
travel, never staying in one place long enough to
be pitied. She did not want pity, she wanted love
and companionship. She was young, scarcely
over twenty-four, and beautiful, and yet she was
terribly uinhhapp'y.
The car turned into Central Plaza and Martita
gave an order to park in some convenient place
where she could watch the crowds parade around
the plaza. Then she picked up a small, black
mask and put it on. She knew no one knew her
and yet masks were mysterious and she loved
mystery. Her dress was the dress of Spain: the


black lace mantilla; and with her black hair and
eyes and full red lips it suited her perfectly.
Perhaps an hour went by before Martita grew
tired of watchingg Then as she was considering
leaving, she noticed a tall figure come out of the
Hotel Central, not twenty feet aw ay, and pause a
minute on the pavement. He was dressed in a
grey tweed suit, with a small felt hat of grey also.
The familiar stoop of his big shoulders convinced
her that he was Barry Craven, the American, a
wanderer like herself, and she hastened tn com-
mand Henry the chauffeur to go for him instantly.
In a minute he was beside her, shaking her hand
and telling her enthusiastically.
"IM), it is good to see you, Martita, in this part
of the world. Take off your mask, I hardly know
you!"
Removing her mask she replied, her voice shak-
ing slightly:
"And it is good to see you, Barry. I am on my
way to Peru. Tell me, where are you going?
And do you realize it has been six months since
we dined at the Ritz-Carlton? Time simply flies."
He took off his hat and settled back to have a
longtalk. His hairwasblackand thick,a little gray
over the temples, Martita noticed, but he was still
the same Barry Craven, whom she had met almost
five years ago on a hunting trip in South Africa.
He was nine years her senior but a man of the
world, an attractive, interesting man also. Every
once in awhile in her travels she would meet him,
and they would talk and sight-sec together, w hile
her traveling companion would rest, and Martita
always missed him when they parted.
"Martita," he continued, "I have been talking to
an old man in that hotel, and he told me that no
one could count the number of people that have
met on the Avenida Central. He told me of the
hundreds of persons who walk or ride up that
avenida, from all parts of the world, and of the
tragedies and comedies that have happened on
La Avenida. I hardly believed him, and yet I
run into you the minute I step out on to it! You,
whom I have thought of much in the last months,
and I have missed you, too, little Martita."

The lights of the city turned on; there is no
twilight in Panama. Martita gazed around; the
crowd seemed tired and yet it was a bizarre back-
ground. The lights and colors dazed her for a
minute, and she looked back into the cool, grey
eyes of the man and said:
"I have missed you, too, Barry. I'm so tired
of this wandering life!"
He took her small hand into his own and leaned
just a trifle forward.


"For five years I have missed something in my
life, something imoi. rt.ar, and it is only now that
I realize what it is. It is you, my Martita! I
love you! Let us marry and leave this life for one
that is better, happier-a home!"
In later years, as they look back, the words they
said, the clothes they wore, and their impressions,
perhaps, will all be forgotten, but the place, La
Avenida Central, will always be remembered.


THE TWO PEARLS.
Hlorace Foster, '2.?.


The two men walked slowly down the road,
apparently forgetful of all humanity other than
themselves. A more ill-matched pair could scarce-
ly have been found, one of them being tall and
wasted-looking, as th..u'lh a disease was marking
his life. He seemed, however, to have a clear and
honest face, and a glance into his eyes would have
confirmed the tlhl..llt. while the other, older and
crafty-looking, had nothing sincere in his make-up.
Him I knew to be a crook with quite a local repu-
tation. As they passed, one of a group of street
lun.' ._, remarked: "There goes Drake with his
new partner, MacPherson."
The two went straight to the waterfront and
entered a boat. As it was small and unfitted for
deep-water sailing there was but one possible ex-
planation of their journey, and that was to search
for pearls.
This place, l.'. *%, once had a great reputation
along that line, but of late the pearls were neither
numerous nor large, so the trade had fallen away.
A few moments later they were joined by a
barrel-chested, lithe-limbed native. It was then
that I was positive of their intentions and felt
nothing but pity for the ,niii~-.,l .1 youngster who
was placing his life in such danger, as Drake would
kill if need be.
MacPherson was all enthusiasm and talked a
great deal of his life. "You know if we find any
pearls it means life to me," he said. "The doctor
told me a few years in Colorado would entirely
cure me, and you don't know the life I've been
leading, avoided by people, looked upon by others
with loathing, and hi.uin.i, 'Let him alone, he


has consumption,' until it has nearly driven me
crazy." He broke down and cried until he had
recovered himself sufficiently to help manage the
sails.
All day long the diver brought up oysters which
were eagerly opened and carefully examined. A
few poor pearls were the result, hardly enough to
pay for the trouble and labor, but MacPherson
was undaunted.
The same story continued day after day, until
even he became at last a mere walking automaton,
dreaming of his future. It is true they had found
one pearl of commercial value, but it was not suf-
ficient for them both, so the hope of finding its
mate drove them onward. If they were lucky
enough to find its mate, both would be rich, and
MacPherson hated to admit defeat.
Late one afternoon, the knife was busily tearing
open the oysters, when the perfect match for their
own appeared, almost as a gift from Heaven, so
suddenly was it laid before their eyes. That night
they sat up late, and talked, one with a gleam
of avarice in his eyes, the other with a far-away
expression.
Each of them, they decided, would keep a pearl,
and when they were sold, MacPhersons' share
would keep him at a sanitarium long enough to
regain his health.
The next day both were due for a sad disap-
pointment. One of the pearls was not the same
size as the other, which necessitated their being
sold separately, and materially lowered their
value. The money that would be received would


~j~-~

not serve to keep MacPherson in a doctor's care
long enough to allow him to recover, and the old
careworn expression returned.
That night he slept heavily on his mattress
and did not hear the stealthy steps of Drake as
he approached. Taking his own pearl from his
purse, Drake slipped it into his tattered and work-
worn clothes. The side pocket being the most
accessible it was there it reposed, along with the
one which he slipped from the money belt of his
partner. This act performed, he stood motionless
for a second watching MacPherson warily to de-
tect any signs of consciousness. Seeing none, he
turned, and quickly left the room.
\\'hen MacPherson awoke a few hours later he
was surprised to find both the pearls lying beside
his bed. Placing them in his belt, he sallied forth
to inquire as to the whereabouts of Drake, and


was told that he had left on the steamer San Nlark
a few hours before.
After the theft, Drake had boarded the San
Mark, paid his passage to another island, glowing
with the satisfaction of having successfully com-
pleted the robbery. As the boat moved away
from the dock he put his hand in his pocket, and
a blank expression came over his face. Good God!
There was a hole in his pocket! Raving and curs-
ing, his demands to be put ashore met only with
ridicule. The pearls were lost to him forever.
A few years later MlacPhtrson sat by the fireside
with his wife, his face glowing with the tinge ot
perfect health, and spoke in a reverent tone, his
eyes filling with tears. "He gave me my chance,
and, sacrificing all he had, left me the pearls
which changed my life. My partner, the squarest
man I ever knew."


THE ANSWER.
Evelyn C. Silverman, '25.


Once upon a time there were three brothers who
dwelt together in peace. But the mayor of their
city was a very cruel man, and he put upon the
citizens severe punishments. At last the brothers
decided to go to another city where one might
enjoy more freedom.
Now they heard of the city of Maline, and they
thought they would go there. In order to become
a citizen of this town one had to go to the market
square and be questioned by the Council of Wise
Men. If the person showed that he had a good
character and a little common sense, he was ad-
mitted.
On the weary journey to the town, the oldest
brother remarked, "I know I shall be admitted,
for I am the oldest and wisest of us all."
"I know I shall get in, for I can solve any riddle
that is put before me," boasted the second brother.
Only the third one remained silent.
Finally they reached the city. They were met
by the \\1ic Men, and told that they had two
days in which to prepare themselves for the test.
The two brothers continued to boast of their wis-
dom, but the youngest brother thought much and
said little.
At last the day came. All the townspeople
gathered in front of the market square to hear the
test put before the strangers. The Wise Men ad-


dressed the three brothers, and told them that the
one who answered the riddle correctly would re-
ceive as a reward the hand of the most beautiful
maiden in the city. Again the two brothers fell
to boasting, but as before, the third one remained
silent.
The oldest brother came before the \ise Nlen.
"Tell us," they said, "if it takes five boys an
hour and a half to play a game of basket ball, how
many pancakes will it take to shingle a box car?"
The young man began to utter incoherent
streams of mathematical calculations, but he was
soon rejected.
The second brother although confident of vic-
tory, met the same defeat.
At last the younger brother approached the
Wise Men timidly. When the question was put
before him, he did not answer. "I will think
twice before I speak once," thought he.
When the Wise Men sawthat he was silent,
they were glad, and said, "You have answered the
question by being silent, for there is no solution
to the problem."
Many days later the young man married the
beautiful belle of the city. Out of kindness to
the youngest brother, the other two were allowed
to remain.
Moral.-Think twice before you speak once.

Mrs. Cottontail, who lived near a big river in
Florida, sent little Peter Cottontail fishing to
catch some fish for their supper. Peter went down
down to a high bank and fished and fished, but in
vain, for the fish just wouldn't bite. When he
was so tired that he could hardly hold the lines
anii longer, he felt a strong tug. My how Peter
pulled! He pullk I and pulled until at last a mon-
strous fish flopped on the bank almost knocking
him over.
"Oh, you great big pretty fish! You will be
enough supper for all of us." Peter was just going
to drop the fish into the bag, when he saw that
there were tears in the fish's eyes. Then wonders
of wonders! The fish spoke and said:
"Peter Cottontail, I know you and I know that
you are a good little boy. Please, oh, please don't
take me home and eat me." And he flopped over
and wept. Little Peter felt so sorry for him that
he simply couldn't take him home, supper or no
supper.
"Please, please, Peter, put me back or I'll die,"
gasped the poor fish. And Peter did.
As the fish landed in the water and swam down-
ward he said:
"I will return you kind deed some day, Peter,
until then-Good-bye."
Oh, what a scolding Peter got when he reached
home! He was put to bed without a bite, for do

I should say not.
About a week later, Peter was sent to fish again.

pitied no one. When he got down to the bank, he
saw a long, round log lying in the water, and he
went out on that to fish. He fished and fished
and fell asleep. After a while he awoke with a
jerk to find the alligator log away out in the river.
My, how frightened Peter was! Oh, but he was
scared! He began to scream:
"Oh, Mr. Alligator, good Mr. Alligator, nice
Mr. Alligator, please, please, take me home."
But old Mr. Alligator was so covered with mud
(that's why Peter thought him a log' that he
didn't hear him. Peter kept on crying and then
finally he heard a voice:
"N\ ait a minute, Peter, I will help you," and
Peter on looking around, saw his friend, the fish,
in the water. He had with him about a dozen
other fish all holding fins. The big fish jumped
over the alligator and knocked Peter off his back
on to the raft of fish. They took Peter home and
gave some little fish to him, for his mother. As
they swam away the big fish said:
"Good-bye, Peter, always be good and kind to
everyone." And all the fish together said:
"For one good turn deserves another."


MRS. GRAY SQUIRREL AND HER WINTER SUPPLY.
Dorothy Eastman, '25.


M rs. Gray Squirrel yawned and stretched in her
bed of soft grass at the foot of an old oak tree.
It was such a shame that she had to get up on
such a lovely morning. Mrs. Gray Squirrel had
thought this same thing, every morning during
the summer, and each morning she had stayed in
bed, comforting herself with the thought that
summer was not gone yet. There would still be
time enough to lay in her winter supply of nuts.
This morning, however, there was a chill in the
air; summer had come and gone; fall was giving
place to winter. Sadly, Mrs. Gray Squirrel shook
her head; she truly must get up.


Once she had decided that important question,
she sprang up, washed her face and hands care-
fully, and made a dainty breakfast on two hazel
nuts, all that were left from her last winters
store. As she nibbled these reflectively, she
thought again that she really must work hard and
gather some nuts that day; it was getting cold.
Going to the cupboard, which consisted of a hollow
in the base of the tree, with branches for shelves,
she took out with great care an oak-leaf bonnet,
fashioned on one of her leisure days from oak
leaves pinned together with thorns from the wild
rose bush, and decorated with a cluster of polished,

shining acorns. It was truly a work of art,
thought Mrs. Gray Squirrel as she tied it on,
gazing in a pool of water to see if it was tilted at
the right angle.
At last she was off for her day's work. She
skipped along merrily, feeling very gay and cheer-
ful. Shortly she same to a grove of nut trees.
Now for work, she thought. But Alas! There
was not one single nut on the ,;.'uiid; there was
not even one on the tree. Tired already, she
bravely trudged on. She spent the forenoon going
from grove to grove and finding not one nut. Mrs.
Gray Squirrel was so tired and hungry she could
hardly move. Still she hopped along, somewhat
painfully to be sure, for she had blisters on both
hind feet. At sundown she was ready to give up
and had already started to return home, when
she saw just a head of her a nut tree; as it was
protected by bushes on all sides it had not been
visited and nuts covered the ground. Joyfully
she ran forward, bruises forgotten, and gathered
and ate two or three of the largest.
Comfortably and cheerfully Mrs. Gray Squirrel
looked around her. Why it was quite dark! She
knew she really should take care of those nuts,
but, Ho! Hum! she was so tired. There was
always to-morrow, and she'd come back bright
and early. So she turned, and carrying a nut
for her supper, hopped briskly off.
When she reached home, she was so tired, she
could hardly wait to take off her precious acorn
bonnet, wash her face, and eat the choice nut she
had selected. Finally, supper finished, she con-


tentedly lIuL''l,.l1 down in her warm bed and was
fast asleep on the instant.
The sun, shining brightly in her eyes, woke her
up the next morning. Why, she thought, it must
be late. Quickly she jumped up and forgetting
her bonnet and breakfast, she ran down the path
to make sure of her winter supply.
She had scarcely gone twenty-five yards when
she met Brownie Red Squirrel with a big sack
over his shoulders. As he saw Mrs. Gray Squir-
rel, he called out, "Good morning, Mrs. Gray
Squirrel, I have had the best luck this morning!
What do you think I found?"
"I can't imagine," said Mrs. Gray Squirrel,
who was really afraid she could guess what he
had found.
"It's nuts, loads of them!" he cried c .. ;r iil,
"I found them under a tree so well protected by
bushes that no one had found them. Oh, I surely
am fortunate! Good day, lr-. Gray Squirrel, I
wish the same to you."
With a great fear that grew greater with every
step, she hurried on. Finally she came to the
place where she had found the tree; trembling
she pushed through the bushes and found her
worst fears realized. There was not a nut on the
ground. Gone was her winter's supply! There
was nothing to do but appeal to the charity of her
neighbors for food. If this was refused, starvation
stared her in the face. She had learned a lesson:
never again would she leave a thing undone that
could be finished that day.
Moral.-Never put ,,H for to-morrow what one
can do to-day.


THE RIVER.
Gwendolyn Barden, '24.


The river softly murmurs, as it gently glides and flows,
Thru a dreamy dusky town, between shady orange groves.
Where the golden laden poppy nods it sleepy, yellow head,
To the murmur of the river, as it slowly glides ahead.

Now the river shouts and laughs in a wild and frenzied glee,
As it rushes down the caion, in its journey to the sea.
Hear the river roar and bellow at the foot of lofty walls,
As it makes a final leap to reach the frothy Seven Falls.


The river whispers softly to the dry and parching plain,
In its onward, onward travel to the far and distant main.
The murmur of the river lu!ls the herdman to his sleep,
In its everlasting effort to reich the briny deep.

In the life of every person comes a rush of tho'ts and dreams
As they struggle toward a goal, as do the mighty streams.
Our tho'ts surge and rise as the waves on tossing seas,
And our dreams are wafted upward thru the branches of the
trees.

Ah, the carnival in Panama! The golden carnival

A TRIP TO IRAZU.
( r., 25.


Irazu, an active volcano between ten and thir-
teen thousand feet above sea level, is situated near
the little town of Cartago, Costa Rica. It is
famous throughout the country; interesting to all,
but especially so to those who endeavor to reach
the top.
While in Costa Rica, a party of tourists of which
I was one, set out on this trip. We left C.irr r- i
on horseback at two o'clock in the afternoon.
Four hours later, having accomplished one-half
of the distance, we stopped at the national sani-
torium where we spent the night.
A few hours before dawn, with a guide and
plenty of warm clothing, we started on the jour-
ney over the hills. Up, up, up, we went-fearing
that the horses would lose their footing at any
moment; but no, these are sure-footed little ani-
mals. However, even they found it so .lii..rlir
to climb some of the slippery passes, that we were
obliged to dismount, and, holding on to the horses'
tails, make the ascent on foot.
By i.i. brr.ik we had reached the top of the


mountain far above the clouds. We breathed a
sigh of relief as we stopped for a moment and
gazed at the beauty below, shivering at the same
time from the piercing cold. We guided our
horses along this mountain ridge for a short dis-
tance, feeling as though we were on top of the
world.
Suddenly we came to the crater's edge, where
we beheld great clouds of steam rushing upward.
A feeling of loneliness swept over each of us as
we gazed at the dead trees and vegetation; we
looked for the sign of some living creature, but
instead gray rocks and desolation met our eyes.
We strained our ears for the sound of living
insects; a silence-a vast and deafening silence-
answered us.
As we stood there the '.r.-hr. rin, sun which
cleared away the mist destroyed the weird beauty
of it all and left nothing but an endless vista of
waste. Still filled with the sense of awe, we
mounted our horses and retraced our journey
homeward.


THE LOST CITY.
Consue/o Camara, '26.


Once, a long time ago, no one knows how long,
there lived in the midst of the San Bias country
a superior tribe of San Blas Indians. They dwelt
in a beautiful city, adorned with the art with
which they were gifted. There were gorgeous pal-
aces, beautifully carved; best of .,l, the people
were very peaceful and content and everyone
was happy.
In this city there lived a beautiful maiden. She
was tall and slender like the graceful bamboo
trees, and her eyes were large and black like the
velvety darkness of a dark night, and her teeth
were like pearls when she smiled, and when she
laughed her laughter was like the tinkling of little
silver bells on a still night. Her hair was black
and glossy as the softest silk and lihn. down to
her hips. She wore a garment of many beautiful
colors wound tightly around her boly, and reveal-
ing her graceful form, and her feet were bare.


Now this maiden was the most beautiful of the
tribe, so she was put in their temple of worship
to dance at their ceremonies and please the spirits.
She was not allowed to see anyone or leave the
temple lest the evil spirits harm her.
This maiden was very happy, for was she not
beautiful, and did she not please the good spirits
and make them happy so that they bestowed all
good things on the tribe? She was accustomed to
dance in a beautiful garden of the palace where
there were many beautiful tropical flowers, and
the air was sweet with the perfume of orchids, and
musical with the songs of the birds. One day as
she was dancing there, a young Indian chief was
passing through the palace; glancing at the garden
he saw the maiden dancing, and he loved her.
Looking up she saw and worshipped him, for he
was very brave and handsome. After that, every
day the maiden danced in the same garden and


(9








THE ZONIAN.


the Indian chief passed and admired her and she
was happy; but when she was alone, she was
quiet and silent and mournful like a beautiful bird
in a cage that has given up hopes of flying around
free and happy in the beautiful tropical gardens.
The high priest of the temple noticed the sadness
of the maiden and decided to watch her, and when
he saw, he was very angry, so he forbade her
dancing in the garden, and she was kept in
the palace all alone. This made the young chief
very angry, so he came and took away the maiden.
This act enraged the high priest and in his rage
he was as fierce as a lion. He summoned the
people of the city before him.
It was a clear m..onlight night when the people
assembled and everything was very quiet except
for the mournful hooting of an owl and, from the
jungles, the doleful, mournful cry of a beast at
prey. When all were there, the priest denounced
the maiden and said that for her sin against the


go-.d spirits the city would disappear entirely
and the people would be divided into tribes, home-
less and wandering, and :he maiden would have to
wander, lonely, ever sorrowful, looking for the
lost city, always seeking until the spirits forgave
her. As the priest invoked this terrible punish-
ment, there was a sudden stillness. Then there
was a rumbling sound as of thunder far away, and
then a rending, awful crash and everything disap-
peared. Nothing was left, nut even the slightest
footprint to show that there had been a city.
Now, on still nights when the moon is full and
bright and you listen closely you will hear a
mournful, hopeless, soft cry, it might be blended
with the soft rustle of the bamboo leaves, blown
gently by the breeze or with the wash of the rest-
less sea on the beach. Wherever you hear it you
will know it is the cry of the lonely maiden, sorrow-
fully seeking for the lost citN and her lost love.


OLD PANAMA.
Josephine Camara, '27.


Let us imagine old Panama as it was many
years ago, where once stood gorgeous palaces and
large cathedrals with golden altars, and where
once %erelbeautiful gardens with a variety of
tropical flowers,'and the many stately streets,
where day after day passed many beautiful senori-


Ruins of Old Panama.


tas, who had large mrnteriou, black eyes, and
black hair, and who were dressed in gaily-colored
costumes with gorgeous mantillas and combs. The
Spanish gentleman would walk the same streets
with his wife or sweetheart or stand under a bal-
cony serenading his senorita. There would be
little children running around; also native men
and women in their native dress, some working


hard, others lazily basking in the sun. In the
convents and monasteries could be seen nuns and
monks. The large boats came in with cargoes, or
went out with their many sails swelling in the
breeze, taking priceless treasures of pearls, gold,
and silver.
Let us think again of Panama as it was in war,
when Mrirgan, the pirate, with his thousands of
followers landed in this peaceful city, frightening
the people; the senoritas and children all running
to the convents and monasteries for protection;
the nuns and monks comtfrting them, while still
others stood in the large cathedrals solemnly
praying. But still the bloodthirsty pirates came
on and fought against the terrorized Spanish
people, and the clash of their swords could be
heard at a distance, while one could see flashes
in the bright sun. Then the yells of the pirates
were heard, and the answering yells of the at-
tacked, hopeless but brave and defiant, until
finally the people were driven from their homes
and the city plundered and destroyed.
Now we come back to the present again and
see the old desolate ruins standing there like ghosts
of a once happy and bright city. Oh! if those
walls could talk what tales they would tell!

A TROPICAL SCENE
Gwendolyn Barden, '24.


A glorious tropical moon shed its light on the
white sand beach, which sloped gently down to
the ocean's edge, where the silver waves lapped
caressingly a,'ainit the shore.
In the distance a ship with white sails was to be
seen creeping noiselessly onward, to the great un-
known ocean.
To the left was a cluster of bamboo huts, with
smallfires in front of each. The light from the fires


cast weird dancing shadows upon the white sand
and reminded one of the distorted figures of elves.
Somewhere from the vicinity of the huts came
the twang of a guitar, and the low voices of the
natives were to be heard chanting some semi-bar-
baric tune.
In the background, the slender palms waved
their branches as if bidding good night to the
peaceful scene.


JUST A DREAM.
Ruth Stone, '25.


"Yes, that's right, and very well done,
It's snappy and bright and full of fun,
Your theme is one I'm proud to see
I'll surely mark it with an 'E.' "

These blessed rare words came to my ears,
And I cast off my unfounded fears,
I'd made an "E" in my English theme,
Now, I thought, school's not so mean!

Then to my Latin I soberly went
My mind upon the lesson bent.
"A good recitation," the teacher said,
"An 'E' for Ruth," from a book she read.


My history class was simple and gay,
I answered every hard question that day,
"Why, Ruth, you've improved," the teacher now smiled,
As we rose from our seats and from the room filed.

Somehow my Spanish I never could get,
And over this lesson each day I'd fret,
But this day I translated every long line,
And at the end was rewarded with, "Fine."

The bell started ringing; it sounded so queer,
It startled me too, for it was quite near.
Then somebody shook me: I felt like a fool.
Forb I'd een in bed, just dreaming of school.

48. THE ZONIAN.


The ZONIAN Staff gave a splendid entertain-
ment on January eighteenth for the "cause" of
our Annual. It was a huge success from the open-
ing number to the last scene of the "movie."
The clubhouse was crowded, and this made all of
our actors and actresses eager to do their best.
And they succeeded beyond all hope. There were
several fine numbers from the school talent. Our
school is blessed with having excellent and willing
workers. We are greatly indebted to them and to
the other local talent for assisting us. We wish
to express our sincere thanks to all who helped
to make the event the success it was.


The Juniors were the center of all interest
around the holidays for giving the H. S. that de-
lightful party on December twenty-first. Every-
body came prepared to have a good time and
even then had a better time than expected. The
Juniors had a novel way of entcrtaininr their
guests, which added a great deal of interest to
the games. All the colleges were represented by
little pennants of their own colors, and each of the
Junior girls tried to outdo the other in obtaining
followers for the college she stood for. Helene
G:in.ison had the honor of having more pledged
allegiance to her college. When everyone had
arrived the games and competition began. Every-
one was interested in beating the others.
Of course there was dancing and the dancers
danced unceasingly to all the latest music by a
"peach" of an orchestra. And then, too, refresh-
ments were served on the balcony.
Everyone had a wonderful time! By the way,
a reputation was lost during the evening. How
about it, Mr. Flint? Has it been found yet?
The Juniors and their advisor, Miss Sherman,
are to be congratulated on their "peppy" party.
It added an extra "merry" to the many "Merry
Xmas" that everyone wished everyone else.


T:2 Juniors again sh n- inI "dc ing t'irir bit"
for The Z3NIAN. By their Carnival in February
they startled the world i. i'., students, faculty,
and residents. There \as a splendid crowd to
look over the various bouths and amusement
centers. A program wa, given in assemblyy by
our dancers, singer;, and actors. This was loudly
applauded and the performers responded gener-
ously. The for:une-tellers were in demand as
everyone wished to kn.:,w what the stars held for
him; the fish pond t'u, w.ia popular an always
crowded. The hot-dog b._th %was neTer empty
either of hot dogs or customers. Cake and candy
booths doled out their wars continually. The
tea-garden drew a gr-eat many als':. After every-
one had spent all his inm.-ncy on us, we danced on
the balcony, and a pc.-,;ftlv grge.us cvncing-
to say the least-was en.jI cd.

Was there ever a "pppier" dance given for
THE ZONIAN than that of the Scni,_rs on December
fourteenth? We douht it, fur all \\ho were there,
students, faculty, and loads of other dance lovers,
had a wonderful tim-. Just ask 'em. They'll
always remember it. The time, place, music, and
crowd all contributed in making it the dance of
the year. Seniors-y i are to be congratulated
on that very successful dance.

THE JUNIOR PROM.
On May 9, 1924. the class of '2; now Juniors,
gave their annual Pr,.m. The affair was held at
the Mosque which had be:'n dec'-'rated with ferns
and flags by the Junior bjys. IDurithy Eastman,
the Junior Class president, Mr. Boss, and Mr.
Robertson received th- guests. Dorothy pre-
sided over the punch b most of the evening;
and, in consequence, punch %as in great demand.
Everyone enjoyed the dance immensely, anJ
agreed that it was one of the very nicest of school
parties.








THE ZONIAN.


The Playshed was the rendevous for Balboa,
Ancon, and "suburban" dancers on the memorable
night of our ZONIAN Dance. Currier's orchestra-
better every time, if possible-played for all to
trip around. Two of our distinguished seniors-
Miss Mary Hearne and Mr. Dinty Moore-cap-
tured the prize fox trot. "Practice makes per-
fect?" Socially and financially the hop was
"great."

The Dramatic Club of the High School has
been doing wonders this year. Play after play
has come from them, each one better than the


last. "The Six Who Passed While the Lentils
Boiled," was splendid. Dorothy Eastman took
the boy's leading part and Katherine Brown was
the queen, and she surely was fitting in her part.
"The Maker of Dreams," was next with Dorothy,
Ida Ruth Hammer, and Edna Duvall. Then-
"Mr. Bob!" We were sure nothing could be
better than the other two, but were we pleasantly
surprised. Edna Duvall and Ida Ruth again
took the leads and they, helped by the rest of the
cast, were all delightful. Girls of the three upper
classes belong to it, and we all hope they keep up
the good work which has been so well started.


WHAT HAPPENED.
Elizabeth Norlteel, '2/.


A moon shines out upon a beach,
Some rocks, here; there, some others.
A breeze blows through some whispering palms;
Enchanted are two lovers.

The breeze blows up a few dark clouds,
Those two row on unheeding,
They leave the shore for a rock out there
Where the waves the wind is reeling.


The silvery sheen of the moon's bright path
Is lost as the storm comes on,
The lovers see they are far from land
And their little boat is gone.

The dawn's bright light breaks through the clouds,
And welcome is the day.
The palms keep whispering ever on,
But bare is the rock in the b.v.

INTERSCHOLASTIC TRACK MEET.


On Saturday, February 23, 1924, the annual
track meet between C. H. S. and B. H. S. was
held at Balboa Stadium.
The interest taken by the Balboa boys is not
at all commendable. The meet was scheduled to
start promptly at 9 a. m. This was understood
by everyone concerned, yet at 9 a. m. there were
only two Balboa boys there to represent our
school. The Cristobal boys came across the
Isthmus without the least hope of winning the
track meet; but they had the fight and spirit,
the chief requirements for any form of athletics;
and they won.
The following is a list of the events and the order
in which they were run:

THE ZONIAN.

BASEBALL.


The first game of the annual series played be-
tween B. H. S. and C. H. S. was scheduled for
Mount Hope. On January 19, 1924, B. H. S.
team boarded the noon train for Mount Hope
which arrived a little late, thus delaying the game
until 2.30. Since the Balboa team desired to
catch the four o'clock train from Colon, an agree-
ment was made before the game started that the
game should stop sufficiently early. Only five
innings were played, but C. H. S. was defeated
from the first inning; and when the game ended
the score was then 8-2, with little fear of Cristobal
getting any more runs.
The batteries for C. H. S. were Papi and Klunk,
and Whirl..ik and Stanziola worked for B. H. S.
On Saturday, January 26, 1924, C. H. S.
crossed the Isthmus to revenge their defeat of
the previous week. The game was played at
Balboa Stadium; and both teams were out to
win. Cristobal lost no time in starting, they got
the first run of the game in the first inning. Bal-
boa tried to retaliate but were unable to do so.
C. H. S. added two runs more to their score in
the third. This looked very bad for B. H. S.;
they seemed to be dazed, bewildered; they had
men on bases practically every inning but could
not bring them in.
Up to the sixth inning it looked as though B. H.
S. wasn't going to get any runs. In this session,
however, Morris, the first man at bat, received a
base on balls; Foster bunted along first base line
and beat it out, Morris going to third; Foster
attempted to go to second but was caught between
first and second, Morris going home on the play.
The next two men up were put out and the side
retired. This was a start for B. H. S. and a rather
exciting inning. B. H. S. scored in the eighth


and had three men on bases when the third out
was made. C. H. S. nearly scored in the last half
of the eighth inning, but Brown was caught at
the plate.
Papi was the star of the game, getting the hit
that drove in the two runs in third, and making
several spectacular catches of fly balls out in
center and left fields. Papi has the "makings"
of a good ball player.
This was a well-played game on the part of both
teams and the players showed good sportsmanship
throughout the game.
The third game of the series was played at
Mount Hope on Saturday, February 2, 1924.
In order to have plenty of time to complete the
game, the B. H. S. players left Balboa at 7.o5 a. m,.
and arrived at Mount Hope at 9.10. The game
started about 10.30 and was rather slow and
drawn out. Again C. H. S. was beaten from the
first inning. Fisher started the pitching for C.
H. S. but lasted only two innings. Fisher had
successfully defeated B. H. S. the previous week at
Balboa Stadium, which occurrence is still a mys-
tery to those who witnessed the game. Fisher
hasn't had much pitching ..\[''i. I..., he was un-
dul brcil, put in because there was no one better
for the job. He dill.i l no curves whatsoever
and he threw the ball in the "groove" most of the
time.
There are fewer boys in C. H. S. to choose from
and the baseball team was chosen in a short time,
although C. H. S. had a schedule that told at
what time in the year the baseball series would be
played.
Much credit is due the C. H. S. for the way they
played and the sportsmanship that was shown
throughout the series.


BASKET BALL.


It has been an established custom on the Isth-
mus, due to the intense rivalry between C. H. S.
and B. H. S., that they play a series of game.,
either three or five games, in which the winner of
the majority receives the honor for that year.
The first game of the series of five games was
played at Balboa playshed on April 5, 1924, C.
H. S. was defeated by the score of 46-16.. BH.
S. showed good teamwork and accurate basket


shooting. C. H. S. was handicapped by not hav-
ing their regular center, who was unable to play.
The second game of the series was played April
12, 1924, on the Army and Navy Y. M. C. A.
floor at Cristobal. C. H. S. was again defeated
but this time the game was not so one-sided.
The addition of Oaks at center gave C. H. S.
new life and they displayed a fighting spirit
throughout the game. The first quarter ended








THE ZONIAN.


o-o. The second quarter ended 5-2; the third
quarter ended 16-9, and in the last quarter B.
H. S. had the game mostly their own way. Good
sportsmanship was shown on the part of both
teams. The playing and point making of Lucas
Zarak was the feature of the game; he made
10 points out of the 27.
C. H. S. is to be commended for the school
spirit they displayed and the way they back
their athletic teams.
On Friday, April 25, 1924, B. H. S. and C. H.
S. played the third and final game of the series
at Gatun Clubhouse. Since the two previous
games had been played, one at Balboa and the
other at Cristobal, the third game was arranged
to be played on a neutral floor.


Mr. Robertson.


The game started after the moving-picture show
and was witnessed by many of the residents of
Gatun. On Wednesday, April 23, 1924, a dance
had been held in the gym hall, and there was a
ten-foot strip across the center of the floor that
was still slippery from the dance. This afforded
much amusement for the spectators, because one
could hardly stand on this portion of the floor.
However, the game was well played by both teams.
C. H. S. was handicapped by the loss of Oaks at
center, but they put up an extraordinary good
game. B. H. S. displayed fine teamwork which
counted very much toward their winning. The
final score was 22-8 in favor of Balboa.


SWINI I NG.

The interest in s\ imnming this viar in B. H. S.
was not so enthusiastic as it has been in the pre-
ceding years. The intcrschrolastic swimming meet
between B. H. S. and C. H. S. iwas forfeited to
C. H. S. because moct of our bet men were behind
in their studies.
B. H. S. swam several tleet teams and hadl very
little difficulty in dLtcating them, but outside of
this there was very little cimperttiun in sw imming
this year.
(GOL F.
The newest innovation otf ports into Balboa
High this year was golf. One tournament \las
played at the adminiiisrrat-in golf course, and
Newton Warwick, a Freshman, emerged c ictori-
ous with a total of 3- trrkc, tfir the ', holes.
Interest ran high thrcnughoiiit the rTournament,
in which there were 14 entrants. It is hoped that
next year an interscholastic meet might he ar-
ranged to decide the Zone school championship.

GOLF rFUL RN.AMENT.
Since golf became such a popular game in the
last three years, B. H. S. endea.urcd to have an
interclass golf tourn:miicnt. There wcre fiurteen
boys entered and ti,. C iirnrament %.%a, pla.1\e on

INDOOR BASEBALL.
On Saturday, April 21, 1924, Cristobal indoor
baseball team crossed the Isthmus to play the
Pacific side team.
The game was exciting throughout, for the
players as well as the spectators.
Cristobal took the lead from the first of the
game, but were gradually caught and passed Bal-
boa had a hard uphill fight from the first to the
seventh inning, but it was the fight and team-
work that made them win. Cristobal played good
ball and showed excellent sportsmanship. The
final inning ended with Balboa in the lead, the
score being 5-o10.
On Saturday, May 3, 1924, the Pacific side
journeyed to Cristobal to play a return game of
indoor baseball. The game was played on the
New Cristobal playshed floor and was well played
throughout by both teams.
Balboa started the game by getting a number
of runs the first inning; they took the lead and
were in no danger at anytime.
The Cristobal girls tried hard, but they were
outplayed at every stage of the game.
TENNIS.
After the indoor baseball game on April 21,
1924, tennis games were 7i.\ c.1 between B. H. S-
and C. H. S. The singles were played first, and
C. H. S. had little trouble in defeating the B. H. S.
team. Belle Martin and Mary Joe Lowe repre-
sented B. H. S. while Charlotte Housel and Gladys
Lowande played for C. H. S. Due to the lateness
of the hour there was not time to play the doubles.
S\\ I NI MING.
Swimming has lately made very rapid progress
on the Isthmus., Due to the fact that there was
no competition for the girls high school swimming
team, there were no meets; however, there is very
good material in the B. H. S. Under the coaching
and direction of H. J. Grieser, our swimming in-
structor, two of our girls are going to try out for
the 01' mpic teams.
Josephine MNI: im, who holds the ladies' cham-
pionship in all crawl strokes races on the Isthmus,
is going to try for a place in the Ioo-meter race.


Angela Klemmar, one of the most graceful high
and fancy divers on the Isthmus, is going to try
to make the ladies' Ili ini team.

BASKET BALL.

A series of four games was arranged between
Cristobal High School and Balboa High School.
The first game of this series was played at Balboa
playshed. This was a very exciting game, and
there was doubt throughout as to who would win.
However, at the end of the fourth quarter, Cris-
tobal High School was in the lead by two points,
the final score being 1-9.
The second game of the series was played at
the Cristobal playshed. Due to the fact that some
of our best .l.-n ur were failing in their studies,
substitutes had to be used. Nevertheless, Balboa
High School was determined to win if possible,
and the fighting spirit that was displayed was ex-
cellent. The game was won by Cristobal High
School by the close score of 9-7.
The third game of the series was played at Bal-
boa plla-hcd. At this one, there were many
rooters to support our team. This seemed to stim-
ulate them, and to give the courage needed, be-
cause the resistance of the guards and the snappy
teamwork, cheered by the rooters, were the reasons
for the defeat of Cristobal High School. Balboa
High School had awakened; the final score being
6-5.
The final game of the series was played at Cris-
tobal playshed. This was a struggle from the
start to finish, both teams endeavoring to their
utmost to win. Balboa High School seemed to
have lost s3me of their fighting spirit, but Cristo-
bal High had a difficult time winning at that.
The final score ended 11-9 in favor of Cristobal.
The sportsmanship and spirit shown on the part
of both teams were of the best, and there was no
contention of any kind. What the referee said,
went, without any dispute.
The line-up for Balboa High School during the
series was as follows: Florence Murtagh, f; Mary
Joe Lowe, f; Alice Oliver, c; Florence Tonneson,
s. c; Mary McConaughy, g; Marie Jensen, g;
Ida Ruth Hammer, sub; Ruth Bickford, sub.

PHYSICAL WORK ON THE CANAL.
E. 1. Bogda, Physical Director.


For some time the idea has been prevalent in
some educational quarters that competitive ath-
letics in a tropical climate are injurious, and that
out athletes so3n burn up. This is not true on the
Canal Zone, because our system of competition
is so arranged that no harm can possibly develop
from our various forms of athletics. We know
that the human body under ordinary environ-
ments has the power to protect itself against un-
due changes of temperatu-e by increased perspira-


Mr. Bogda.
tion, deep breathing, etc.; consequently we are
very careful not to tax the devices for contracting
the heat produced through exercise. Therefore
we eliminate vigorous exercises; shorten the
periods of games; and, in general, lessen the pos-
sibilities of attaining what sometime is called
"Athletic condition." Nevertheless our high
school athletics are on a par with similar activi-
ties in the United States, perhaps due to the fact
that the average high school boy on the Canal


Zone who participates in athletics is better devel-
oped physically than the average boy of equal age
in a northern climate.
\Mu h credit is due to the Health Department
for the efficient check that they have made on
each child living on the Canal Zone. This en-
ables the authorities in physical education to
work on authentic records, without which they
would frequently find themselves in a dirfi..ul
and compromising situation regarding the per-
formances of individuals.
As a whole, we deal with our athletics from the
standpoint of recreation and health, thereby
teaching the games instead of developing "stars."
Our attention is given to the mass and not the in-
dividual. By the time an athlete is in his prime
some College or University is taking the credit
for 'a. iai turned out a "star." Of course they
forget that their new found "star" has had pre-
vious training; but having lived in the tropics
he was not given the opportunity to put forth his
very best efforts.
The necessity of physical education on the
Canal Zone is more imperative than perhaps any
place in the United States, because the youth here
has few home responsibilities and his surplus en-
ergy must be taken care of in the right way. Then
too, the climatic conditions are such that it is
possible to have outdoor activities the year round.
Under these conditions, what is more essential
than physical education and the supervision of
play? A visit to any of our local playgrounds will
convince any pessimist that physical education
is the important part of a boy's or girl's life on
the Canal Zone.

Synopsis of Scenes.

AcT I.-Drawing room of the Dangerfield mansion.
AcT II.-The kitchen-afternoon-two days later.
AeT III.-The dining room-just before dinner on the same
day.

Colonel and Mrs. Dangerfield are traveling in
Europe for the Colonel's health. The four Dan-
gerfield children, Olivia, Paul, Elizabeth, and
Charles, have planned to lease the Dangerfield
mansion through Randy Weeks, the family friend
and real estate agent. They have leased it to
Crane, a Yankee millionaire. They are sitting in
the drawing-room awaiting the arrival of the four
servants from Washington, and discussing the sit-
uation, when Randy comes in and tells them that
the servants have decided to break the contract.
This places the Dangerfields in a very difficult
position. Olivia comes to the rescue with the sug-
gestion of their acting as servants themselves.
Olivia's suggestion meets with disapproval and
they are still undecided, when suddenly they hear
a car approaching. They decide to conform with
Olivia's plan. Crane arrives with three guests,
Mr. Tucker, his attorney, Mrs. Falkner Tucker's
sister, and Cora, her daughter. Mrs. Falkner is
desirous of a match between her daughter and
Crane and she does everything within her power to
bring it about. Cora is infatuated with a poet,
Thomas Lefferts. Her mother has tried to dis-
courage Lefferts, but her efforts have proved in


vain. The Dangerfield children have taken up
the new work with optimistic views, with the
exception of Elizabeth, who is very much opposed
to the plan. With the arrival of Mrs. Falkner
many difficulties and misunderstandings arise over
the cook, Olivia, who by the way, has won the
hearts of all the gentlemen in the house. The
final outcome is the dismissal of Elizabeth and
Charlie, also the hasty exit of Mrs. Falkner and
Cora. Later, Charlie disguised as an old man and
cause of Paul's dismissal, renters. Oli ia. Crane,
and Tucker are the only ones left in the old man-
sion and Tucker is leaving that evening. Olivia
receives a cable telling of the Colonel's recovery.
At dinner that evening Randy strongly objects
to Olivia and Crane remaining in the house alone.
This causes an argument between the two men and
they decide to let Olivia do as she pleases. Olivia
stays with Crane. After the guests have gone,
Crane tells Olivia that he loves her. The feeling
is evidently mutual as the delightful comedy ends
with Olivia in Crane's embrace.
Curtain.

Floride Edwards, as Jane Ellen, made a most
irresistible cook. She played her part with excep-
tional ease and won the hearts of all who saw her.
Mattielee Brown, as Araminta, depicted a maid
who would please the most exacting of mistresses.
Elizabeth Norfleet, as Mrs. Falkner, showed dra-
matic ability in playing the rble of an aspiring so-
ciety woman. Gwendolyn Barden as Cora, was
very demure and dainty. Ruth Bickford deserves
credit for her excellent characterization of a
Southern mammy. Marvin Banton, as Burton
Crane, was a man who could in any maid's heart.
Alton White, as a poet, deserves honorable men-
tion for his clever acting. Abner Silverman, as
Tucker, played his part very cleverly. Philip
Thornton played the part of an English butler to
perfection. Charles Cross, as Brindy, was very
original. Robert Engelke, as Randy Weeks, was
a very law-abiding attorney and not bashful in
expressing his feelings.
We wish to extend our thanks and show our
appreciation to: The management of the Balboa
Clubhouse, the district quartermaster, Mrs.
Campbell Cross, Andrew Whitlock, and his assist-
ants; also the coach, Mrs. Halzell, who so kindly
made the presentation of the play possible.

............. Sophomore roommate to Dick
A sophomore


Place.

In Georgia Tech; in Dick's room.

Time.
Afternoon.

Alfred.-Alfred is a tall athletic English lad who has
not as yet adapted himself to the way of American
college boys. His clothes are up to the minute as far as Eng-
lish style is concerned. His manner is somewhat stiff).-"I say,
so this is an American college! It is not a bit what I expected.
The jolly fellows are so confounded-er--er rough and
unreserved; not a bit like our aristocratic English boys. They
actually seem to enjoy that extraordinary game of football.
I dare say it would shatter my nerves. Now I much prefer
that jolly game of cricket. (He sits down at the desk and is
soon absorbed in reading.)
nit.r Jack and Dick. They are all bedecked with ribbons
and banners in full evidence of having come off the football
field. They do not notice Alfred, at first.)
Jack.-"Wasn't that game a corker! Seven to six in our
favor."
Dick.-"I'll say it was! But wasn't Ned a trump to make
that winning touchdown. He'll be the hero of the school for
weeks to come!" (Door opens; enter Ned. He is in his foot-
ball togs; he shows good evidence of having been in the thick
of the "battle.")
Jack (making a leap for Ned).-"There you are old man!
Congratulations! You turned the trick." (The two boys de-
vote their full attention to Ned.)
Alfred (Getting slightly interested).-"1 say, old dears, what
is all the bally excitement about?" (The two boys grasp him
by the arm, and dance him about the room until he is a wreck
of his former self.)
Together.-"Excitement! Our pal won the game for the
Sophs!"
./ i'. (Trying to smooth his ruffled self).-"Jolly well, old
dear, jolly well."
Ned.-"Did you see the game?"
Alfred (Somewhat taken back).-"Why, I thought you
understood that I do not contemplate seeing a crowd of ruffians
engaged in such- er-- "
Dick.-"By heck, you'll see the next football game this old
school plays, or I'll eat my hat!"
Alfred.-"I-I say, don't get rough."
Jack.-"Never fear, mama's sweet patootie." (Alfred exits
hastily.)
Ned.-"Who ever thought I would get a roommate like
that; he hasn't a grain of sand." (Silence for a moment.)


Jack.-"I tell you, let us begin to reform him."
Dick.-"Reform him! Kindly leave me out."
Ned (With sarcasm).-"I say, old top, how exacting do
you---
Jack.-"We'll turn into a bally Englishman ourselves; feed
the fellow pink tea, swear off football and adopt the bally
bligther's ways. Some plan, eh what?"
(Light dawns on the two boys.)
Together.-"By jove, old dear, a corking idea!" (Ned exits.)
Jack.-"Well, old dear, we must go and dress for 'dinnah.' "
Dick.-"Capital, old top." (Exits.)
(Alfred enters. He is dressed very formally for dinner. At
first he seems deeply absorbed.)
.1/fred.-"I say, I wish I were a bit like these jolly American
fellows. Let me see (silence for a moment), I dare say I'll
go out for football; and what is more, I'll make some jolly
flapper-what is it now- er- ah, yes, fall for me. (To
himself) What say you now, old dear?" (He takes off his
dinner jacket and loosens collar and tie.) "I rather think that
looks sporty." (He struts about the room not as stiff as pre-
viously.) "Now! That's just corking." (He beams with sat-
isfaction.) i <\l enters, dressed very formally for dinner.)
Ned.-"How's the bally blighter this evening?"
I'. I (Not as stiff as formally).-"Just corking!"
Ned (Aside).-"Sweet papa, what's happening!"
(Enter Jack and Dick.)
T '. '.-"Good evening, gentlemen."
Ned.-"The top of it to you, sirs!"
.lfred.-"Good- er- evening."
Jack (Consults watch).-"The darned thing has stopped,
again. I say Alfred, I should jolly well like to ascertain the
time of the day, eh what?"
Alfred (Rather suspiciously).-"My watch has stopped also."
(A servant brings the dinner in. They sit down at the table.)
Ned.--"\', e, Alfred, we have decided to adopt your sedate
ways; we have been going at it rather fast lately."
Jack.-"I jolly well suggest that you give up football. The
game is altogether too rough, old timer."
.Afred.-"Rather queer, I thought I would like to take up
the jol-game."
Al/ together.-"Learn the game! By Jove!"
Alfred (Aside).-"I'll be a- what do you call it- a tea
hound yet." (To the astounded boys.) "I must go now. I
have an engagement with my-- er- sweetie (aside) who
isn't." (Exit.)
Ned.-"A sweetie, eh-well, I never!"
Dick.-"He wants to go out for football. Hit me hard, will
vou, Ned?"
Jack.-"We will be professional reformers yet."
(Curtain.)

ACT II.
(A month later.)
(Jack and Dick are seated at opposite sides of the room.
They are deeply absorbed in study. Jack slams his book
down.)
Jack.-"I can't get this theorem."










THE ZONIAN.


Dick.-"Well, who could, when a fellow knows that his
class is going to wipe those freshman off the field, and we not
there to see it!"
Jack.-"I did think 'Ducky' was a better sport than to
'stick' us for this afternoon merely for 'cutting up' in math
class."
Dick.-"Listen to those freshmen yell. Gee, what's hap-
pening?"
Jack.-"You don't mean to say those freshmen are winning!"
(They make a rush for the window.) "Look! The ball is on
the six-yard line! There goes the freshmen fullback! Ow!
Hold it! !"
Dick.-"He's down in his ovn tracks. Hurrah!!"
Jack.-"Stopped again! And by Jove, Ned did it." (They
are wild with excitement.)
Dick.-"What's the matter now! I guess some little freshie
has weakened." I4.:k tears his hair with nervous excite-
ment.)
J,, --"Ye Gods and little fishes, look! That's not Alfred
coming out, is it?"
Dick (Sarcastic).-"It is! It will be easy sailing for the
Sophs with Alfred as the freshmen fullback. I hope we will
be able to locate his scattered remains."
Jack (Seriously).-"They are calling signals."
Dick.-"Great Scott! There goes Alfred through the line
for four yards." (They groan.)
Jack.-"Those freshmen are going wild!"
Dick.-"See! Roddy has the ball now! He gains a yard."
Jack.-"If those freshmen win, we will never hear the end
of it."


Dick.-"Thev ire calling signal,! Oh, if the Sophs will only
hold them this time, the gamt aill be our-."

All the world's a school,
(So it seems sometimes)
And all the boys and girls are merely pupils:
They have their expulsions and graduations;
And one student in his time plays many parts,
His acts being the four years in High School.
At first the "Freshie" with a swelled head
And puffed chest, he struts about.
Then the Sophomore with a thoughtful
Countenance, sighing like a furnace, with a woeful essay


On "C:aes.r's use ,d L.atin in the Gilh \Wars."
The third :ceiie 'hilft into the Junior,
Light of f:.t :,nd brain, the c're,
Of the pururt t at knowledge disturbing not hi. bljnd

OUR CLASS.

Robert Engelke, '2 .

Four years ago in Balbho High,
There entered a joyous crowd
Of Freshmen, who were very green
And also very loud.

We were not use.l to customs here,
As anyone could see,
We looked about in bewilderment,
Like a man "that's up a tree."

The Seniors looked so dignified,
"Hello, you scrub," they'd say,
"Look here, young man, you are too fresh
Just get out of my way."

But now that class it has advanced,
'Tis Nineteen Twenty-Four,
We are no longer ignorant scrubs
As we were four years before.

The Freshman eye us up and down,
They have a little knowledge:
"Those hams'll get theirs, without a doubt;
W ait till they get to .. II' "


EVENING IN THE TROPICS.

Horace Foster, '25.

I sit on the porch in the evening,
And the moon rises over the sea,
Shedding its glorious radiance
Over the I indscape an. me.

The twilight deepens to darkness,
While the heavens are turning to jet;
The breeze which moans through the paln trees
Restores memories we never forget.

The swishing and hissing of breakers
As they advance up the sandy beach,
Make one pensive and silent,
Precluding all thought of speech.

Peace under starry canopy,
Bliss, and ecstacy, too,
Such the tropics can give one,
If he her treasures will woo.


REMINISCENCES.

Ien ll','iss, '2J.,

As through the busy world we roam,
Our thoughts will always take us home;
Back to the place we love the best,
Our dear old school, our B. H. S.

Our pleasant thoughts once more will fly
To the happy days so long gone by.
'Twas there we studied with pain and strife,
To fit ourselves for afterlife;
And all we'll ever be, we'll owe
'To what we learned so long ago.

A TRIBUTE.
Breathes there a girl with soul so dead,
Who ever to her sheik hath said,
When do we cat ?

AS YOU LIkE IT.
Dvlgga.'.s Crois.

We have many cliques and clubs
In our curriculum
And certain\ hope that they endure
For many a millennium.

The Anion Valentinos,
That loyal band and true,
They have a sheik for leader
And %hat he says they do.

The Three Mlusketeers are eccentric
And their whims have given them fame
They've spent a Christmas vacation
On :he Tigri hunting for game.

These arc but a few of the many
Of whIh something should be said,
But their fame "ill live as their doings,
Immortal when we are dead.

"Silently, one by one
In the infinite books of the teachers,
Bloom the neat little zeros,
The forget-me-nots of the pupils."

TilE ZO;\' I:\;\'. EDITORIAL I L 1 IT' S :\OT TOO UTE. D o you take school as a joke? Ha\'c YOli considered yo ur years of a waste of time? ))0 you you could h;1\'1.: done better had you stopped :1fter completing grammar sc hool? Some:! of you do, hut f e\\ h:1\"c made feel that Y o u ha\ 'c gone [0 school because YUli were made to go, not because wanted to work and improve yourselves. Eac h moment s hould b e lIsed in study-study which h elps so much e\'en i f you ha ve l eft school. Education helps everyone. The r e is no one that can not be improved by rhe right SOrt of trainin g. How much better it is to be taught in school to help yourself, than by the experience o f hard knocks. I f yOli put yourself in rhe proper attitude to recei\ c insnuction, YOll wilt learn something every day which will help you later on. Turn over a new leaf at once. i\lake vourself lik e sc hool for \'our future life's sake. Stmh' seriousl y. :Notic e how many things YOll wililear;l in the hours yOll had thought wasted. Then you will learn to make a s u ccess of anything you undertake. THE HIL L O F D I FF ICULTY. For every person in this world, there is a hill of difficulty. Though sOllle of these hill s are high a than others, none are insurmountable. I f the peoplt: of the world wen;: divided into distinct classes, we could see JUSt how thes.e hilts o f difficulty are treated. There is one group that goes to the foot of the hill, and examines it. I t looks at the size of the hill, its height, its width; and then sits down and waits for the hill to 1110 \'C itself. This group is always disappointed; for the hill, instead of mo\'ing itself, piles hig her and high!:r. There is another group that goes to the foot o f the hill, and I11ca-;urcs it, and then decides to tr't to walk around. few of this group e\'er ceed, for when the difFerent members get to the other side, can not find the path, ;nd so can not go 011. There is another group that goes to the hill, and feeling that it cannot climb the hill decides to tunnel through it. I f the tunnel is straight. and the digging is performed so that the walls will not cave in, this group is successful. l 'nforrunately, howe\'cr, the \ 'arious members of the group are in too great a hurry and "hen the tunnel is dug, the walls cave ill) ;lnd the peoplc can in no way get out. There is another group that can climb the hill with a little assistance. Some pcople, who understand the difficu lties better than the climbers do)

PAGE 8

THE ZON I AN. can guide their first steps, after that the group can be left alone. The olles who are willing to help these people, are the ones who ca n most easi l y ascend their own hill s. Another group that goes, thinks that the climb will be easy, and looks down upon those w h o do not think so. i\lany m embers of this group slip and fall. Some of these start out with a new determination, and r e a c h t h e top o f r h e hill safely; but many others stay at the bottom, and wait f o r the hill [0 move itself. The last group i s t h e one t hat l ooks at t h e h ill, sizes it up, and with grim determination, dec i des [Q climb it. few of t h is group fail, for "\Vell begun is half done." They do n o t t r y to ru s h up without any effort, ther do n o t wait for a miracl e to carry them [0 t h e top, but t hey themse l ves get busy and work ha rd. Everyone falls in[Q one of t h ese classes. I n which aile are you? \\'ork for the last one; it may seem at times that you can not succeed, but persevere, and you will win. Y OU R OPPORTUNI T I ES. The majority o f students in H igh School do not realize that they are in the formative p e riod o f their lives. Minor in cidents in daily l ife, a s bor rowing a s heet of pape r, failing to return a penci l or telling a little white l ie to get out of an a ss ign ment, all lead to greater n eg l igence in more ma ture yea r s. Habits formed in youth f ollow one thro u g hout life. A s t h e bones in one's b ody take on the s ha pe that t hey will carry through life, whil e o n e is young, so does one's brain expand or lie dormant. \ igorous exe r c i se o f the brain in youth p ermits earnest t hinking and h eavy brainwork in later life, I f assig nm ents w e r e don e each day, not co m pleted just for a grade, but h onestly studied and honestly learned, e ach clay, what a fun d of knowledge o n e would have! Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, do not wait until you are Seniors to rea l ize what sc h oo l m ea n s Do not wait until yo u can o nl y regret that you did not make rno reof your High School course, but study each day! Take advantage o f your opportunities as they are o ffered [Q YOli. B EW.'\RE FRESHIES! Phyllis Millikm, '2-/. "Early t o bed and early t o ri se makes a man h ealthy, wealthy, and wise," This ma y be an o l d saying but, neverthe l ess, it i s true.

CAREFULNESS. Barden, '2-/. Carefulness is one o f t h e things which we s h ould learn in sc h oo!. I n doing our written lessons, if w e are in a hurry, we are lik ely to b e carel ess a n d leave some s mall unimportant word out, or mi sspell a word, which, if w e took time to think, we n o doubt would spell r i ght. These s m all things are sometim es overlooked by t h e teachers, but later in our business life, our e mployers will not b e so willin g to overl ook our e rr o r s. Many days we co me to cla ss with our l esso n s unprepared, expecting the teach e r to give u s another c h ance to catch up. 1 f we were care ful in the planning o f ou r work the r e would b e n o need to ask for another c hance. Carefulness i s something which we s h ou l d try to dcvdop while we are in sc h ool, so that in after years we w ill not r egre t our ca r eless, s lovenly way of tryin g to get through life.

That we had seven miles of hot, dusty and stony trail to cover before we reach ed our destination, bothered us littl e The morning air was delightful ; w e had eaten and drank Ollr fill before lcaving; w e were comfortable. \ \ 'e crossed t h e Can:ll in two rowboats, and then began our (we didn't realitc h ow vcry long) hik c to t h e native village, A raj:lll. For the first three miles conversation flowed easi l y, with frequent bursts of laughter; but soon both became more infrequent. The slln's presence was now felt. The trail was getting steeper. Soon we came to a native: hut II here We stopped to fill our canteens, and to rest. The Spanish woman there was vcry pleasant, and even produced a mirror that the g i rls might "brightt:n tlp" all t h e ir energy had not gone J't'l. She also served papaya, whic h we devoured in little time. Then we r esumed o u r hik e. Agai n conversation brig htened, but soon anI), puffs and "whews" and "ohs" were h e:ud a s w e trudged on, the sun's rays beating upon us. I t began to seem as though we'd traveled fifty miles, and with each curve we prayed that when it was rounded, :\rajan, coo ling and refr es h ing, would lie befor e u s. J say cooling and refreshing, for YOLI see, we hadn't been there b efore and had had a beautiful picture of a stream, overhung by cO\'cred trees and all you know, the regular tropical scene, Presently however, we knew berrt:!". : \rajan lay before liS, and as we could not ha,'e gone a step farther, we sank down on the grass under sOllle trees and there until we were rested to get up and hunt t ht:: stream. \\'e found it, or rather the watering place of the village.

Xo need to mention that we were starved. That is a mild cxpn:ssion compared to the conc.li tion we were in. So we sat down in the shadr place and soon made s hort work of the lunches prepared by the girls One of the girls, sad to ha d worn h er s h oes out o n the trip, so we went on :l shopping tour up in the village, w here rope-soled s h oes were purchased for t h e suffering one, The rest of the was s pent in exploring and resting b)' turns.

They were able to get o nly five, and as their owners wOldd not let us ride doubl e, the boys had to walk.

Carnival m eant nothing to her; s h e WClSjUS[ one o f the many travelers passing t h rough Panama on her way to South :\mcrica. D espite this, however, s h e could not help but feel a tinge o f excitemen t as s h e watched the gay spectacle On either s id e of the street were noisy. dashing, dazzling people; so m e were throwing confetti and others that vile-smell ing liquid which made its victims scream in pain. Others fall along the sidewa lk sing ing and bumping illco one person and then another. There were people of every desc ripti o n and co lor, ther were speaking different tongues, motioning after the manner of their nationality, and gayly flirting back and forth, from the half-clad natives to the rich l y dressed H indus. Her car see m ed to poke a long; h e r chaufl"clir swore softly under his breath as h e narrowl y missed hitting the s mall nati\Te boys who ran into the street to pick up fallen confetti. She thought of her life as s h e rode along; it ha d b ee n strange; her people had died when s h e was o nly a chilli, and since then s h e ha d spent her life spen di ng her father's immense fortun e, traveling from one place to another, meeting many people but never making friends. Her name, l\Iartita Cabrie, was known from one end of Europe to the other. H ad not her father been the richest man of France for half a century and h e r mother the m ost notoriou s woman? Y es, and those two fac t s made h e r travel, never staying in one place l o ng e n o ugh to be pitied. She did not want pity s h e wantecl love and companion s hip. She was yo ung, scarcely over twenty-four, and b eautiful, and yet s h e was terribly unhappy. The car turned in to Central P laza and iVIartita gave an order to park in some convenient place where she cou l d watch the crowds parade around the plaza Then she picked up a small, black mask and put it on. She kn ew no one kn ew her and yet masks were mysterious and s h e loved mystery. Her dress was the dress of Spain; the black lace mantilla; and with her black hair and eyes and full r ed lips it suited her p e rfectly. P erhaps an hour went by be fore l\1artita grew tired of watching. T hen as she was co n sideri n g leavins, s h e noti ced a tall figure come out of t h e H otel Central, n o t twenty feet away, and pause a rninute on the pavement. H e was dressed in a grey tweed suit, with a small felt hat of grey also. The familiar stO:lP o f his big s h o ulders can vinced her that h e was Barry Crave n, the American, a wanderer lik e h erself, and she ha s t e n ed to command H enry the chauffeur to go tor him instantly.

THE ZO r I A r the Indian chief passed and admired her and she was but wh e n s h e was alone, she was quiet and si l ent and m ournful lik e a beautiful bird in a cage that ha s give n up h opes of flying around fr ee and happy in the b eautiful tropical gardens. The high priest o f the temple n o ti ced the sadness o f the mai de n and decided to watch h e r, and when h e s aw, h e was very angrr, so h e forbade her dancing in the garden, and s h e wa s k ept in the palace all alone. This made the young chief very angrr, so h e ca m e and took away the maiden. This act enraged the high pri es t and in hi s rage h e wa s as fierce a s a lion. FIe sUlllmoned the peopl e o f the cit)' b e for e him. 1 t was a clear m oonlight night when the people a sse mbled and was very quiet except for the mournful hooting of an owl and, from the jungles, the doleful, m ournful c ry of a b east at prey. \\' h e n all were the r e the priest denoun ced the maide n and said that f o r her s in against the good spirits the city would disappear entirely and the people would be divided into tribes, homeless and wandering, and the maide n wou l d have to wander, lonely, ever so rrowful, looking for the lo s t city, always seeking until the spirits forgave h e r. As the priest invoked this terrible punishm ent, there was a sudden stilln ess Then there was a rumbling sound as o f thunder far away, and the n a rending, awful crash and everything disapp eared. Nothing was left, not even the sljghtest footprint to s h ow t hat t h ere had b ee n a city. Now, on still nights when the moon i s full and bright and you listen closely you will hear a mournful, h opeless, soft c r y, it might be blended with the soft rustle of the bamboo leaves, blown g ently by the bre e ze or with the wash o f the restl ess sea on the beach. \Vh e rever you hear it you will know it is the cry o f t h e lonel y maiden, sorrowfull y seeking f o r the lost city and her lost love OLD PANAMA 70sep/line Camara, '27. L e t u s imagine o ld Panama as it was many years ago wh e r e o nc e stood gorgeous palaces and large cathedrals with golden altars, and where o n ce w e r e .beautiful gardens with a variety o f tropi ca l 'f!owers,and the many stately streets, wh ere day after daypassed many b eautiful senori-Ruin'Jof OlJ Panama tas, who had large m ys teri o u s black eyes, and black hair, and who w e r e d r essed in gaily-colored costumes with go rgeous mantillas and combs The Spanish gentleman would walk the sam e streets with hi s wife or sweetheart o r stand unde r a balcony se renading his senorita. The r e w ould b e little c hildren running aroundj al so native men and women in their native d r ess, so me working hard, others lazil y basking in the sun. In the convents and monasteries cou ld be see n nuns and monks. The large boats came in with cargoes, or went out with t heir many sails swe lling in the breeze, taking priceless treasures of p ea rls, gold, and silve r. Let us think again of Panama as it was in war, wh e n J\lorgan, the pirate, with hi s thousands of follo wer s landed in thi s p e ac e ful city, frightening the people.; t h e senoritas and children all running to the CO!l\ 'el1[S and monasteries for protection; the nuns and monks comforting them, w h i l e still orl:ers stood in the large cathedral s solemn l y praying. Bu t still the bloodthirsty pirates came on and f ought against the terrorized Spanish pe o pl e, and the clash of their swords could be heard at a d istance, while one co uld see Aas hes in the bright stln Then the yells of the pirates wer e heard, and the answering ye lls of the attacked, h opeless but brave and defiant, until finally the people were driven (rom their homes and the city plundered and destroyed. Now w e come back to the present again and see the old desolate ruins standing there l ike ghosts of a once happy and bright city. Oh! if t h ose walls cou ld talk what tal es they wou l d tell!

Therefo r e we eliminate vigorou s exercises; shortcn t h e p e r iods of games; and, in general lesse n the p os sibilities o f attaining what so m etime i s c alled Athleti c conditi o n our h igh sc h oo l athle tics are on a par with similar acti"i ti es in tht.:: United States perhaps due to the fact that the average high sc h oo l b 3y o n the Canal Zone who participates in ath l e tics i s b ette r developed phys i c ally than the average boy of equal age in a northe rn climate. ;\I uch creJit i s due to the H ealth Department f o r the efficient c h ec k that they have made on e a c h chilJ living on the Canal Z o n e This e n abl es the autho riti es in physica l education to work on authe nti c records, without which they w ou ld find themsel ves in a difficult and compro mi sing situatio n regarding the per forman ces o f in di"iu liai s :\s a whole, we deal with our athletics from the standpoint of re creatio n and h e alth.J thereby t eac h ing the games in s tead of developing "stars." Qur attention is g i\'en to the mass and not the in di,iliual. B y the time an athlete i s in his prime so m e C ollege or L'ni\'ersity is taking t h e c redit for ha"illg tllrned alit a "star." Of course they forget that their n ew f ou n d "star" ha s had pre, iells training; but having li\'eJ in the tropics h e was not give n the opportunity t o put forth his very best efforts. The n ecessity o f phrsica l education o n t h e Canal Z o n e i s more imperati \'e than p erhaps any p l ace in the United States, because the routh h ere has few home responsibilities and hi s surplu s energy must bt! taken care of in the right way. T hen too, the climatic conditions are such that it is possible to ha ve outdoor acri,-ities the rear round.

Dangerfield are traveling in Europe for the Colonel's health. The four Dangerfield children, Olivia, Paul Elizabeth, and Charle s, have planned to l ease the Dangerfie ld mansion through Randy \Veeks, the famil y friend and r ea l estate agent. They have leased it to Crane, a Yankee millionaire. They are sitting in the drawing-room awaiting the arrival o f the four servantS from \Va shington, and discussing the sit uation, whe n Randy comes in and tells them that the servants hav e decided to break the contract. This places the Dangerfields in a very difficult position. Olivia comes to the rescue with the sug gestion of their acting as servants themselves Olivia's s u ggestion rr.eet s with disapprova l and they are still undecided, when suddenly they h ear a car approaching. They decide to confor m with Olivia's plan. Cran e arrives with three guests, i\ 1r. Tucker, his attorne y, Mrs. Falkner Tucker's s i ste r, and Cora, her daughter. Mrs. Falkner i s desirous of a matc h betw ee n her daughter and Cran e and s h e does everything within h er power to bring it about. Cora is infatuated with a poet, Tho mas L eflerts H er mother h as tried to dis courage L efferts, but her efforts have proved in vain. The Dangerfield children have taken up the new work with optimistic views, with the except ion of Elizabeth, who is very mu c h opposed to the plan. With the arrival of Mrs Falkner man y difficu lti es and misunderstandings arise over the cook, Olivia, who by the way, ha s won the hearts of all the gentlemen in the hou se. The final ou tcom e is the dismissa l of Elizabeth and Charlie, also the hasty exit of Mrs Falkn er and Cora. Late r, Charlie disguised as an old man and cause of Paul 's dismissal, reenters. Olivia, Crane, and Tucker are the only ones left in the old man sion and Tucker i s l eav ing that evening Olivia r eceives a cab l e telling of the Colonel's r ecove ry.
